8(1)A residuary body may by agreement with any relevant successor authority, and on such terms as to payment or otherwise as the parties consider appropriate, provide that authority with professional or technical services.E+W

(2)Each residuary body shall as soon as practicable after it is established—

(a)review the professional and technical services provided by the Greater London Council or the relevant metropolitan county council, as the case may be, and the staff employed and property used by them in the provision of those services; and

(b)in the light of that review ascertain from each relevant successor authority whether it is likely to wish to enter into an agreement with the residuary body under this paragraph, being an agreement the performance of which by that body would make it desirable for any such staff or property to be transferred to that body.

(3)If any relevant successor authority indicates to a residuary body that it is likely to wish to enter into such an agreement as is mentioned in sub-paragraph (2)(b) above that body shall forthwith make a report to that effect to the Secretary of State who shall take it into consideration and make such orders under sections 52 and 100 of this Act as appear to him to be appropriate unless he considers it inexpedient to do so.

(4)In this paragraph “relevant successor authority”, in relation to a residuary body, means a successor authority exercising functions in the area for which that body is established and “successor authority” means a London borough council, the Common Council, a metropolitan district council, a new authority and any other body to which functions or property of the Greater London Council or a metropolitan county council are transferred by or under this Act or any other enactment.
