Expense claim forms for Councillor George Davies (Wirral Council) 2013 (continued)

Expense claim forms for Councillor George Davies (Wirral Council) 2013 (continued)

                                             

Wirral Council have provided a further four pages of expenses returns for Councillor George Davies. Cllr George Davies is a Labour councillor for Claughton ward. His expenses return are for car mileage, tunnel tolls (cash and Fast Tag), car parking and tickets. These four pages cover the period of 11th July 2013 to 13th November 2013.

The tunnel toll of £3.20 on 1st August 2013 is a return trip through the Mersey Tunnel using cash. However on 11th September 2013 (£2.60) and 18th September 2013 (£2.60) these other trips are return trips using a Fast Tag. Cash tolls were £1.60 (each way) during this period and Fast Tag was £1.30 (each way).

There is an entry for £2.50 for two tickets for the 29th October 2013 which relates to the Child Poverty Working Group. I’m not sure exactly what it’s for as it’s written in the “tolls and parking” group and appears to not relate to tunnel tolls.

On the mileage side thankfully Cllr George Davies has provided mileometer readings.

For example on a trip to visit Chief Officers on the 29th July 2013, his start mileage is 53960, his finish mileage is either 53970 or 53974 (as both figures were written here although it looks like 53974 is the later figure) and mileage claimed is 14 miles.

His four page claim consists of:

658 miles travelled @ £0.40/mile = £263.20
Tunnel toll (cash) @ £1.60 each * 2 = £3.20
Tunnel toll (fast tag) @ £1.30 each * 4 = £5.20
Parking (18/9/13) = £2.80
Tickets (29/10/13) (2) = £2.50
Unknown but probably parking (31/10/13) = £1

Total: £277.90

  1. […] Updated 21/10/2014: A further four pages of Cllr George Davies’ expense claim forms were provided on the 17th Oct…. […]

  2. If he is on other appointed bodies,can he claim expenses from them
    e.g Liverpool City Region – Housing and Spatial Planning Board.

    • These expense claims relate to the 13/14 financial year before the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority was created.

      However expenses for councillors (and officers) attending its meetings would be made from the Council they are there representing.

      This is because it was made clear that the LCRCA wouldn’t pay out expenses. Politicians made it clear before it was started that LCRCA wouldn’t cost any more money than the present arrangements that predates the creation of the LCRCA earlier this year.
