(a)there shall be ascertained in accordance with the rules set out in the Fifth Schedule to this Act as respects every separately rated area in the county borough whether the operation of Parts I, V and VI of this Act would, apart from this and the last preceding section, result in a gain or loss to the area, and the amount of the gain or loss :

(b)if a loss is disclosed as respects any one or more of such areas, and the Additional Exchequer Grant (if any) of the county borough is an amount less than one-half of the aggregate amount of such losses, there shall be paid out of moneys provided by Parliament to the council of the county borough the following amounts, that is to say:—

(i)for the year beginning on the appointed day and each of the four following years such sum as, together with the amount of the Additional Exchequer Grant (if any), is equal to one-half of the said aggregate amount of such losses;

(ii)for each of the next succeeding fourteen years an amount less than the amount payable for the preceding year by a sum equal to one-fifteenth of the amount payable for the year beginning on the appointed day :

(c)the Minister shall make regulations for securing that the grants under this Part of this Act paid to the council of the county borough shall be applied towards making good to areas with respect to which a loss is disclosed the amount of such loss or of part thereof in such manner as to effect the objects of this section.
