HC Deb 23 April 1952 vol 499 cc23-4W
Mr. J. Taylor

asked the Minister of National Insurance if he will review the scale of allowances for travelling and other expenses for persons required to attend before a medical appeal tribunal, and make appropriate increases to meet the higher costs of travelling and subsistence.

Mr. Turton

Increases in rail or bus fares do not affect a person required to travel for the purposes mentioned as the actual amount incurred is refunded. I am not aware that other allowances are regarded as inadequate, but I will willingly consider any information the hon. Member may care to let me have about them.
