(b)in the case of a county borough, of the council of the county borough, as would have to be met out of rates levied within the county or county borough if no Exchequer Grants under this Part of this Act and (so far as any such Grant is relevant to the year in question) no Exchequer Grants payable for any previous year under the Local Government Acts, 1929 to 1946, were payable, and if no grants had been made out of moneys provided by Parliament to local authorities by the Minister by way of special assistance in respect of their financial difficulties arising out of the war.
