HC Deb 22 July 1968 vol 769 c16W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer on what date he received the Greater London Council's application for an improvement in the travel expense mileage allowance of 7¾d. per mile for cars up to 1200 c.c. and 9¼d. for those above, now allowed to all councillors, based upon a doubling of the road tax fund, 1s. 7d. per gallon on petrol, 1s. per pint on oil, and other increased prices since 1962.

Mr. Harold Lever

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given him on 11th July by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Housing and Local Government. The Greater London Council's application was properly addressed to his Department: no application has been made to the Treasury.—[Vol. 768, c.130.]
