The local authority shall establish a sinking fund or funds in respect of any loan raised by or granted to it and shall cause to be paid into such fund or funds such sums in every year to provide for the redemption of the loan or such sums as the State Authority may direct and the local authority shall not appropriate any sum from the sinking fund for any other purpose without the consent of the State Authority.
