I have been supplied with a Garda car under the Ministerial transport scheme and do not use a private car for official purposes. Department of Finance Circular 07/2009: Motor Travel and Subsistence Rates sets out the subsistence rates that can be claimed by all Departmental Staff, including myself and the Ministers of State assigned to my Department.
