Reduce car mileage rates for Civil Servants

Civil Servants claim 50p a mile for using their cars at work. Reduce this to 30p a mile as it easy covers their petrol costs.

Why the contribution is important

Save money and reduce driving round time.

    Yukiyama maybe first off find out how many miles are being claimed every year for private use - is this a big issue or not?

    Then presumably it would be equitable to pay own car use mileage at the same rate claimable by private employees for tax.

    Nah pay Civil Servants less per mile when they drive their own car at work. Simples.

    Not all Civil Servants claim their business mileage, I never have!

    Far better ensure there are sufficientbpool cars (ideally electric) somthat no civil servant, or Tynwald member, needs to use their own car - the employer should provide the transort, and control the expenses that way. Private use of pool cars already is required to be charged tomthe user. There would be one anomaly to address, however, which is people that have to be on call to attend incidents at any time going direct from home for speed.

    What happened about the cost of parking? If I recall it was not set at commercial rates but at a taxpayer subsidised rate.

    Provide me with a car to go from site to site instead of me using my own - great idea. How many more cars will Government have to buy to allow staff to travel site to site? What planet are you on?!

    I suppose it will help the economy all the extra new cars paying tax to themselves. Yes you thought this one through really well!

    50p per mile covers fuel, wear and tear, insurance (work use) and car parking. Not unreasonable when you look at the cost of fuel over here.
