Made

Coming into force

This Order is made in exercise of the powers conferred by section 52F(4) and (7) of the Local Government Finance Act 1992(1).

The Secretary of State, pursuant to section 52D(2)(a) of that Act, designated Lincolnshire police authority as regards the financial year beginning in 2008.

The Secretary of State notified the authority in writing pursuant to section 52E(2) of that Act of her decision to designate it, the principles determined under section 52B of that Act in relation to it, the amount which she proposed should be the maximum for the amount calculated by it as its budget requirement for the year, the target amount for the year (that is the maximum amount which she proposed it could calculate as its budget requirement for the year without the amount calculated being excessive), and the financial year as regards which she expected the amount calculated by it as its budget requirement for that year to be equal to or less than the target amount for that year.

Lincolnshire police authority informed the Secretary of State by notice in writing under section 52E(5)(a) of that Act that, for the reasons stated in the notice, it believed the maximum amount stated under section 52E(2)(d) of that Act should be such as was stated in its notice.

The Secretary of State has considered the information supplied by the authority (being information of a kind, and provided in a form specified by her for the purposes of section 52F of the Act), and such other information as she thinks is relevant.

In accordance with section 52F(7)(a) of that Act a draft of this Order was laid before and approved by resolution of the House of Commons.

The Secretary of State makes the following Order:

Citation, commencement and application

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order applies to Lincolnshire police authority. It states the amount which the amount calculated by the authority as its budget requirement for the financial year beginning in 2008 is not to exceed.

An impact assessment has not been prepared for this instrument as the Secretary of State cannot make assumptions as to which services and activities may be affected when an authority calculates a lower budget requirement.
