Car Allowances: Voluntary Work

Volume 488: debated on Tuesday 24 February 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will introduce tax relief on the travel expenses of pensioners who work as volunteers for charities. (258048)

There are no plans to introduce such a tax relief which would introduce administrative burdens for charities and volunteers. Many organisations demonstrate good practice by reimbursing their volunteers’ travel expenses.
