21Transfer of functions under Registration Acts

(1)On the appointed day the functions of boards of guardians under the Registration Acts in relation to a registration district and to any sub-districts comprised therein shall—

(a)if the registration district is wholly comprised within one county or county borough, be transferred to the council of that county or county borough;

(b)if the registration district is not wholly comprised within one county or county borough, be transferred to the council of the county or county borough which is estimated by the Registrar-General to contain on the first day of January preceding the appointed day the larger or largest part of the population of the registration district;

and the functions so transferred are in this Part of this Act referred to as " transferred functions."

(2)Until such schemes as are hereinafter in this Part of this Act mentioned are made, nothing in this Act shall affect the area of any existing registration district or sub-district, without prejudice, however, to the exercise of the powers contained in the Registration Acts as to the alteration thereof:

Provided that, where as respects the part of a registration district comprised in a county or county borough the transferred functions in relation thereto are exercised by a council other than the council of that county or county borough, and in pursuance of such powers of alteration as aforesaid an order is made whereby that part is constituted a separate registration district, or is added to a registration district comprised in that county or county borough, the order shall provide for transferring to the council of that county or county borough the transferred functions in relation to that part of the registration district and to any sub-districts comprised in that part.
