§ Mr. Hooson
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what comparisons are made in fixing the car mileage allowances for persons working for bodies for which he is responsible, and including area health authorities, with those applied by local authorities and water authorities; and if any steps are taken to minimise the differences between them.
§ Mr. Nicholas Edwards
The arrangements for negotiating car mileage allowances, as for conditions of service generally, vary considerably in the different public services. It would not be practicable to seek to secure uniformity.
