Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

12Continuation of third fixed grant period for certain purposes

(1)This section shall have effect as respects the following enactments (which contain financial provisions relating to the third fixed grant period), that is to say—

(a)section ninety-three of the Local Government Act, 1929, (which provides for schemes for increasing the sum to be set aside out of a county apportionment in respect of a district the council of which has established a maternity and child welfare committee) ;

(b)sections one hundred and one and one hundred and two of the said Act (which provide for schemes for the payment of contributions by the councils of counties or county boroughs to voluntary associations or to the King Edward the Seventh Welsh National Memorial Association in respect of maternity and child welfare and other health services) ;

(c)section four of the Midwives Act, 1936, and section two of the Cancer Act, 1939, (under which Exchequer grants are payable in respect of expenditure imposed by those Acts).

(2)Notwithstanding the preceding provisions of this Part of this Act, the third fixed grant period shall not for the purposes of any of the said enactments be deemed to have terminated until immediately before the day which is the appointed day for the purposes of Part II of the National Health Service Act, 1946, and payments shall be made accordingly ; and, without prejudice to the generality of the preceding words, payments shall be made under schemes made under section ninety-three of the Local Government Act, 1929, as if there had continued to be county apportionments :

Provided that any sum payable by the Minister by virtue of this section under any such scheme as is mentioned in paragraph (a) or paragraph (b) of subsection (1) of this section shall be paid by him out of the Exchequer Transitional Grant or Exchequer Equalisation Grant, if any, of the county or county borough council in question for the year 1948-49 and, in so far as it cannot be so paid, shall be paid out of moneys to be paid to the Minister by that council.

(3)If the date on which any of the said enactments ceases to be in force (either by virtue of an Order in Council fixing an appointed day under the National Health Service Act, 1946, or of any Act of the present Session terminating the existing poor law) is a date before the end of the year 1948-49, the enactment in question and any relevant scheme made thereunder shall have effect so as to require the sum to be set aside or paid for the said year under that enactment or scheme to be the appropriate fraction of the estimated amount which would have been so set aside or paid if the said enactment had continued in force for the whole of the said year. The appropriate fraction is the number of days in the period beginning with the first day of the said year and ending immediately before the date on which the enactment ceases to be in force divided by three hundred and sixty-five.

(4)Any scheme made under any of the enactments, mentioned in paragraph (a) or paragraph '(b) of subsection (1) of this section which, by virtue of this section, continues in operation on or after the first day of April, nineteen hundred and forty-eight, may be altered or revoked by a subsequent scheme made at any time between that date and the date when the enactment in question ceases to be in force as aforesaid.
