Taxation: Voluntary Organisations

Volume 475: debated on Monday 28 April 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will increase the level of milage for which tax-free expenses may be paid to volunteer drivers of voluntary and charitable organisations. (202096)

I refer the hon. Gentleman to the answer given to the hon. Member for Stroud (Mr. Drew) on 12 November 2007, Official Report, column 22W. HMRC allows volunteers to use the approved milage allowance payment (AMAP) rate for convenience, but it is not mandatory and volunteer drivers can claim tax relief for the full cost of motoring by completing a return, if they wish to do so.
