Reply To: Can car payments be classed as maintenance?


That is what our LA representatives are supposed to do. It is also the role of Ministers and the House to check legislation as it is passed (although much of our governing legislation is secondary and therefore goes unchecked). Some “loopholes” are intentional and thinking of the consequences of “closing” this one, I can see many reasons for not doing so.

Policy intentions are one thing, but as local authorities we must work to legislation as passed, not LA procedures, or what we believe legislation to be.
