The sheet above shows the expenses rates, from 1997, which staff were able to claim for different engine sizes of cars or motorbikes. If you weren’t insured for business use of your own car you were able to claim the public transport rate of 20.1p a mile.

Thanks to Peter Poole for sharing the expenses rates document.

The following comment was left on the Pebble Mill Facebook page:

Carl Dolan: ‘Yes the rate is currently 25p and 45p so it has gone up by 2p since 1997!’
