12 May 2016: MPS' BUSINESS COSTS AND EXPENSES FOR DECEMBER 2015 AND JANUARY 2016
As part of its regular and routine publication of MPs’ costs and expenses, IPSA has today released details of all claims processed in December 2015 and January 2016. It also includes claims not paid. The data reflects claims processed in that two month period and should not be interpreted as a trend or pattern. The statistics for February and March 2016 will be published in July.
The annual aggregate of MPs’ business costs and expenses is usually published in September. This year it will be delayed until November 2016 to allow time for a new, improved website to be developed.

Notes to Editors:
- The full searchable publication website is at: www.theipsa.org.uk
- The data is stored on the publication website by the date on which a cost is incurred. But, as a necessity of frequent publication, we add data to the publication website by the month in which a claim is processed.
- Repayments are made to IPSA by MPs and third parties for a variety of reasons. These include: refunding items for which an MP no longer wishes to claim; refunding payment card transactions for which an MP does not wish to claim; and where an MP has received a rebate or refund from a third party, for example on their business rates or utility bills.
