To help balance the books, Conwy Council wants to bring staff in line with those in ten other Welsh authorities who have implemented the 45p a mile rate
or eleven others who are planning to do so.
But Creasman adds that the big savings today are coming from efficiencies throughout the entire supply chain--not just by beating up carriers over a nickel a mile rate
. As he says, "There's more money to be saved in supply chains than just rates."
At a 12-hour per day march rate, this would equate to an 8-minute per mile rate
But no Welsh MP has taken advantage of the 20p per mile rate
offered for journeys by bicycle.
But plenty - such as the 57.7p per mile rate
for using their cars, or the free first-class travel - helps them enjoy an already comfortable lifestyle.
