Time for TEA? Does it still exist?

Does Training Expense Allowance still exist?

When I was in during the last century we could claim T.E.A. if we had to go to the TAC from work and therefore needed to get a meal out because we couldn't get home in time for one.

This circumstance applies to me and to a lot of others I would imagine.

Our Pay Clerk had never heard of it. Is it still available?

If Drill nights are going to be C1 then it might help a bit for those who it applies to.

Back in the dim and distant past, TEA and travel were all that you got for attending a drill night.

When they introduced the 1/4 days pay for 2 hours work, that was a bonus.

However, as pretty much all drill nights are to be C1 training until Apr 10, T&S and TEA will not be claimable (as I read it).

If Transport isn't paid I just won't be going, no question. Costs me about £20 to get there and back.

If drill nights are paid, it is because the training conducted falls under one of the exemptions to the new rule and T&S should be paid as well.

If it doesn't, it should be C1 - and no T&S.

Allegedly.
