HC Deb 12 November 1952 vol 507 c68W
Mr. Field

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the cost per mile for the use of Ministerial cars for private purposes.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The use of official cars for private purposes is confined to the Ministers who are assigned police protection. These Ministers pay a mileage rate of 1s. 6d. for private journeys, and this more than covers the additional cost of the private journeys.
