§ Mr. Marten
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether travel on railways within a foreign country during the course of a holiday is excluded from the £50 travel allowance.
§ Mr. MacDermot
Yes, for travel by an accepted direct route between the United Kingdom and the traveller's destination, provided that tickets are booked in advance in the United Kingdom. The cost of excursions in the course of a holiday must be met from the allowance.
