  • (b) to a given difference between his total expenditure divided by the population of the Metropolitan Police District and his grant-related expenditure so divided;
  • "Receiver's total expenditure" means that part of the Receiver's expenditure for a year which falls to be defrayed out of the Metropolitan Police Fund and which is not met by any such grant as is mentioned in section 50(7)(a) or (b) above but reduced by the amount of any payments of such descriptions as the Secretary of State may specify which fall to be paid for that year into the Metropolitan Police Fund;
