§ Mr. Arthur Jones
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he can now say what figure he proposes to prescribe in respect of the new attendance allowance payable to members of local authorities from April next.
§ Mr. Rippon
Subject to approval by the Pay Board, the maximum amount of 491W the allowance, which is taxable, will be £10 for a period of 24 hours. Local authorities will fix their own figure within this maximum and may pay a smaller sum in respect of approved duties which occupy less than a full day.
