Here’s a little missive from The Taxpayers Alliance all about mileage allowances and how some councils are paying over the odds!
It would appear, and we may be wrong, we are sure ‘Your Waverley’ will trot out one of its Press Releases on this one, but you will see from a clip of the table below – that Waverley Borough Council employees are paid way over the HMRC recommended rate of 45 pence per mile. They are paid 65 pence per mile. But, from our investigations Waverley Borough Councillors are paid the HMRC rate of just 45 pence per mile.
Well done Waverley Councillors!
Now if you want to make a tiny contribution to the £2.8m in savings you have to find over the next three years to ensure a balanced budget – how’s about dropping that 65p down to nearer the HMRC recommended rate – rather than threatening to remove the £750,000 you give in grants to the voluntary sector. The sector that is saving you/us the millions of pounds ever year?
