HC Deb 03 May 1966 vol 727 cc1414-5
32. Mr. Will Griffiths

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government whether he is aware of the financial hardships being experienced by many elected members of local authorities; and whether he will take action to deal with this in advance of the Maud Committee's Report.

The Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Housing and Local Government (Mr. James MacColl)

The Government have promised that the rates of financial loss allowance which are paid to others besides local government members, will be reviewed this year. A decision on this matter is not dependent on the report of the Maud Committee.
