1952 SLUM CLEARANCE AND HOUSING ORD



OBJECTS AND RKAQONS.
By sections 39(1) and (2) of the Slum Clearance
and Housing Ordinance, 1946, the Central Authority
receipts become general revenue and all payments on its
behalf are required to be made from public funds. Since
the finances of schemes operated by the Authority are
intended to be self-balancing over a period, arid since
in the early years of a scheme receipts will exceed ex-
penditure,the effect of the present requirements will be
that in those years Revenue will be artificially inflated
by those receipts, that they will have to be expended on
the ordinary services of tne Colony, and that in later
years substantial sums will have to be provided from
ordinary Revenue to meet the Authority expenses.
2, The object of this Bill is therefore to amend the
principal Ordinance to ensure that the Authority re-
ceipts will be available to meet its expenditure, and
make the annual estirtates of the Central Authority
subject to the approval of the Legislative Council.
