92. Deputy Duncan Smith asked the Minister for Finance if his Department will instruct businesses to base the benefit-in-kind company vehicle calculation on the previous year's mileage, that is 2019, as opposed to January 2020 for overall 2020 calculation in view of the fact that January is a month in which regular business operations are slowed due to a number of factors; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
