HC Deb 04 July 1995 vol 263 c114W
Mrs. Anne Campbell

To ask the Attorney-General if he will detail the amount of travel claims at constant prices in his Department in(a) 1993–94 and (b) 1994– 95 broken down by (i) public transport, (ii) car mileage allowance and (iii) bicycle allowance. [32169]

The Attorney-General

The amount of travel claims made by staff in my Departments in 1994–95 prices is given in the table.

Mr. Nelson

HM Government have no plans to ask the Bank of England to review its controls in relation to Central Gilts Office accounts. Placing the Bank under the duty of inquiring about the propriety of stock transactions would reduce the speed and efficiency of the settlement service and would therefore add to the costs of government funding. I remain of the view that the measures taken in the Pensions Bill provide effective safeguards for the security of scheme assets.
