HC Deb 22 January 1974 vol 867 c252W
Miss Joan Hall

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if, in view of the rise in the price of petrol, he has any plans to increase from £5 the annual petrol duty allowance for disabled drivers.

Mr. Alison

This allowance was discontinued two years ago except that a decreasing number of earlier beneficiaries still get it as a "reserved right". In these circumstances there would be no question of increasing the sum they receive.
