(3)In the case of an assessment area being a county borough, the assessment committee shall consist of such number of persons to be appointed by the council of the borough as may be determined by the council, but not less than one-third of the members of the committee shall be persons who are not members of the council, and if any member of the committee not being a member of the council becomes a member thereof, his term of office as a member of the committee shall thereupon expire.

(2)As from the appointed day, in subsection (4) of the said section seventeen the words "boards of guardians" shall be repealed, and any scheme under the said Act constituting an assessment area and determining the proportion in which the various authorities entitled to representation on the assessment committee for the area are to be represented thereon shall, subject to the provisions of any new or amending scheme, have effect as if the references to the members of the committee representing boards of guardians were omitted therefrom.

(3)Notwithstanding anything in the foregoing provisions of this section, the following provisions shall have effect with respect to members of assessment Committees holding office immediately before the appointed day:—

(a)a member appointed by, or on the nomination of, a board of guardians shall not vacate his office by reason of the dissolution of that board or of the fact that he himself ceases to be a guardian; and

(b)in the case of an assessment area being a county borough, a member of the assessment committee who is on the appointed day a member also of the council of the borough shall not vacate his office by reason of the fact that more than two-thirds of the members of the committee are members of the council, but after the appointed day no person being a member of the council shall be appointed to be a member of the committee if on his appointment the number of the members of the committee who are members of the council would exceed two-thirds of the total number of the committee.
