HC Deb 13 June 1961 vol 642 cc37-8W
69. Mr. Parker

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government and Minister for Welsh Affairs what progress has been made with proposals for giving councillors adequate repayment for time lost owing to council work and for fares within their authority's boundaries incurred in council work.

Mr. Brooke

The rates of the allowances which members of local authorities may claim for loss of earnings are being considered. Provision to remove restrictions on claims which members may make for travelling expenses for journeys within their authorities' boundaries is included in the Public Authorities (Allowances) Bill now before Parliament.
