HC Deb 21 December 1973 vol 866 c450W
Mr. Roderick

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will remove the requirement that only councillors living more than three miles from the place of meeting may be entitled to a subsistence allowance, in view of the disadvantage to those members who do not own cars when meetings are adjourned for lunch.

Mr. Graham Page

No. A restriction of this sort applies in many fields where allowances are claimed from public funds.
