The No-voters rejected the Motion:
In the opinion of this House the reduction in the rates at which the car mileage allowance is payable till they are the same as the car mileage rates approved by the Inland Revenue, which was agreed by the House on 3rd November 2004, should be phased in between 1st April 2005 and 1st April 2009, or the day after the general election after next, whichever is the later; and the rates to be in effect for each year should be determined by the Members Estimate Committee; and the higher rate of the allowance should continue to be payable up to a total of 20,000 miles and the lower rate thereafter.
There had been no debate for this motion. It's not stated what the rejection of this motion means. They are either against the reduction in car mileage allowance in general, or they are against its gradual phasing in and in favour of bringing it down immediately.
