§ Mr. Sean Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what were the precise components of the mileage allowance calculations for hospital doctors and dentists, the results of which are to be found in advance letter M.D.5/86.
§ Mr. Hayhoe
The mileage allowances are based on the schedules of motoring costs published by the Automobile Association each April. I have placed a note explaining the calculations in the Library.
