I am writing to obtain information about how much council employees can claim per mile for using their car, motorbike or bicycle, and for how much the council pays out in mileage allowances per year.
To outline my query as clearly as possible, I am requesting:
1. How much council staff can claim per mile for using their vehicle. Please provide the rate for each of the financial years: 2008-09, 2009-10 and the current 2010-11 year. If applicable please break this down by type of user or use, and please provide the rates for different types of transportation.
2. Please also provide the different rates if a threshold exists, for example, if the rates are different for the first 10,000 miles and thereafter.
3. The total amount paid out in mileage allowance payments for “casual users”, broken down by financial years, 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11 to date.
4. The total amount paid out in mileage allowance payments for “essential users”, broken down by financial years, 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11 to date. Please also break these totals down into lump sum payments and claim reimbursements.
Please find attached the information you have requested.
