any representations made to him by any local authority in the area

 

concerned, or by the agency.

 

(4)    

Two or more local authorities to which any function has been delegated

 

under this section may arrange for it to be discharged by them jointly or

 

in accordance with any executive arrangements agreed by them from

 

time to time.”’.
