Miles too much
SHAME on the councillors at Huntingdonshire District Council, who pay themselves 54.4p a mile travel allowance (The Hunts Post, February 28). How can they justify claiming this sum when MPs claim 40p a mile? What would be the annual saving for Huntingdons
SHAME on the councillors at Huntingdonshire District Council, who pay themselves 54.4p a mile travel allowance (The Hunts Post, February 28).
How can they justify claiming this sum when MPs claim 40p a mile?
What would be the annual saving for Huntingdonshire residents if councillors and council officers were paid the lower sum for their business mileage?
As the next increase in Council Tax is about to hit, what sum is paid as travel allowance to councillors and officers at the county council, Cambridgeshire Constabulary and the Fire & Rescue Service? Many thanks for highlighting this matter.

* Editor's note: Officers and members of Cambridgeshire County Council are reimbursed at HM Revenue and Customs' recommended rate of 40p a mile. The fire service says it pays up to 54.4p a mile but makes extensive use of pool cars. Cambridgeshire police refused to provide the information without a request under the Freedom of Information Act.
