HC Deb 04 November 1954 vol 532 c68W
58. Mr. Murray

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what expenses for subsistence and travelling are allowed under his regulations to magistrates in the performance of their duties.

Major Lloyd George

A justice may claim a lodging allowance of 37s. 6d. in London and 30s. elsewhere if his duties necessitate his obtaining overnight accommodation. He may claim the amount of his fare if he travels by public transport and a mileage allowance at rates which vary according to the circumstances if he uses a private motor vehicle.
