    Barrie and others v Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council EAT/224/94 (0 other reports)

In Barrie and others v Rochdale Metropolitan Borough Council 14.6.95 EAT 224/94, the EAT holds that car allowances paid to employees of the council were wholly in respect of expenses incurred by them in doing their jobs. The fact that part of the allowances was taxable did not mean that this part was "wages" within the meaning of the Wages Act 1986.
