(a)as to the apportionment for the purposes of this Part of this Act of the expenditure of any joint authority (including the receiver for the metropolitan police district and any assessment committee) amongst the areas liable to contribute to such expenditure, and for the part of the expenditure so apportioned to any area being treated as expenditure of a spending authority for that area for those purposes; and

(b)as to the manner in which the amounts of any grants payable under this Part of this Act are to be adjusted if and so far as any such adjustment is required in consequence of any alterations or combinations of authorities or alterations of boundaries taking effect on or after the appointed day; and

(c)as to the manner in which, subject to the express provisions of this Act, any calculation or estimate is to be made for the purposes of this Part of this Act, and as to the authority or person by or to whom any information required for the purposes of any such calculation or estimate is to be given, and as to the time at which and the form in which it is to be given; and, in particular, the regulations as to the manner in which expenditure falling to be borne by rates is to be calculated or estimated may provide for that expenditure being taken in appropriate cases to be the amount of the payments made in any year, and may provide for such adjustment as may be necessary to correct any abnormal treatment of income or expenditure in accounts; and

(d)for prescribing anything which, under this Part of this Act or under the Schedules therein referred to, is to be prescribed.

(2)The Local Government (Adjustments) Act, 1913, shall as from the appointed day have effect as if in paragraph (a) of subsection (1) of section one thereof for the reference to the Estate Duty Grant, and the residue under section one of the Local Taxation (Customs and Excise) Act, 1890, mentioned in that paragraph, there was substituted a reference to the grants payable under this Part of this Act, and as if for the rules contained in Part I of the Schedule thereto there were substituted the regulations made under paragraph (b) of the last foregoing subsection of this section.

(3)Regulations made under paragraph (c) of subsection (1) of this section shall make provision for securing that where proposals for the development, of institutional treatment for their area were submitted to the Minister by the council of any county or county borough at such a date that grants in aid of capital expenditure on institutions to be provided thereunder are payable in accordance with the directions of the Treasury, then, if the execution of the proposals was delayed by the directions of the Minister and liabilities in connection with the proposals were incurred by the council with the approval of the Minister before the twelfth day of November, nineteen hundred and twenty-eight, and in consequence of the delay the amount of any grants paid or payable to the council for the standard year is less than the amount thereof which would otherwise have been so payable, the amount of the grants paid or payable to the council in respect of that year shall be estimated and certified as if they had been increased by such amount as may be prescribed.

(4)All regulations made under this Part of this Act shall be laid before Parliament as soon as may be after they are made.
