§ 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for the use of their own cars for official purposes; the right, which has been infrequently exercised, was recently withdrawn.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.
