§ 8. Sir Edward Keeling
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that a resident in Australia is allowed every year a travel allowance of£150 in non-sterling countries; and why a resident in this country is allowed little more than a quarter of this amount.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
The circumstances—such as the distance and frequency of foreign travel—are very different in the two cases.
§ Sir E. Keeling
But as it is a fact that Australians can get£150 every year, whereas other people in the sterling area distant from Europe can only get£40 a year and accumulate it for three years, can we not be told whether the Chancellor has any idea how many Australians, in fact, get£150 every year
