§ Mr. Langford-Holt
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will make a statement about the basic travel allowance for the coming year.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
The basic travel allowance for the year beginning 1st November, 1952, will remain at £25. The allowance for children will remain at £15, but the adult allowance will now be given to children of 12 or over, instead of 15 or over, on the ground that many Continental hotels charge adult rates for older children.
