Conwy Councillors themselves have already accepted the 45p a mile rate
and yesterday Conwy's principal scrutiny and overview committee voted to recommend to its Cabinet that staff must claim the same rate from November 1 this year.
7p per mile rate
for using their cars, or the free first-class travel - helps them enjoy an already comfortable lifestyle.
This means that the volunteer mile rate
from September 1 through December 31, 2005, is 34cents per mile.
The group argues a 35p per mile rate
will not cover fuel prices and the wear and tear of the vehicles in everyday use and would affect more than 2,000 of its members.
Eventually, the change would bring staff in line with those in ten other Welsh authorities who have implemented the 45p a mile rate
