§ 62. Sir I. Fraser
asked the Economic Secretary to the Treasury if he will give details of the new rules regarding the allotment of foreign currency for ordinary and business visits to countries overseas.
§ Sir A. Salter
As regards the tourist allowance, apart from the changes in the standard rates of which my hon. Friend is aware we have had to discontinue the previous arrangements for allowing larger amounts for travel in Denmark, Norway and Sweden. We have also had to restrict the payment of fares in sterling to the cost of travelling by the normal direct route.
There has been no change in the rules regarding allowances for business travel.
