Mileage rates. Please be aware that the Committee have agreed that the rates for the use of private motor vehicles has increased from the 1st October 2010 from 20p to 30 pence per mile. In calculating this rate please multiply the mileage for your return journey by 30 pence and divide by the number of  occupants in the vehicle, including the driver.

For example: A return journey of 20 miles in a car with 4 occupants =           20 multiplied by 30 is £6 divided by 4 is £1.50 per person for the journey.
