HC Deb 28 July 1976 vol 916 c246W
Mr. John H. Osborn

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will publish in theOfficial Report the mileage allowance granted to civil servants in his Department and those institutions, offices and research establishments for which he is responsible, respectively, indicating variations for the different grades of seniority and type of car permitted.

Mr. William Rodgers

There are two rates, the public transport rate—for journeys over 75 miles—and the standard rate, for shorter journeys, where the costs and circumstances of the journey are considered justifiable. The rates are:

pence per mile
Public transport rate 4.9
Standard rate: (501–1000cc) 9.3
(1001–1750cc) 10.8
(1751cc and over) 11.8
