HC Deb 19 March 1953 vol 513 c28W
77. Mr. Hurd

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer to what extent the Treasury lays down the scale of the car allowance made to members of advisory bodies, such as the Southern Electricity Consultative Council, when travelling on official business; and if he is satisfied that 9½d. a mile is an appropriate allowance for owner-driven cars having in mind that 6d. a mile is commonly adopted in business firms.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

I am looking into this matter, and will write to my hon. Friend.
