HC Deb 01 May 1952 vol 499 c102W
60. Mr. Wigg

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will state the Members of the Government who are permitted to claim mileage allowance in lieu of the use of a motor car allocated for their personal use; and the number of miles, and the amount, for which claims have been made during the period 1st January to 31st March, 1952.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

No Ministers are now entitled to claim mileage allowance for the use of their own cars for official purposes; the right, which has been infrequently exercised, was recently withdrawn. Three claims were made during the quarter ended 31st March, 1952; they were for amounts totalling £27 8s. 3d. covering a mileage of 892.
