Exemptions Applied: None
Request

I would like to request a list of those MPs issued a "yellow card" and a "red card" under the scheme outlined in the Telegraph (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/mps-expenses/7933006/MPs-expenses-Staff-at-quango-created-red-card-system-for-rude-callers.html).

If a list of the MPs' names is not possible, then please supply the numbers of MPs issued with each type of card, preferably by party.

Response

IPSA has never considered or instigated a yellow or red card system for MPs’ behaviour. We do not recognise the claim made by the Telegraph in the article to which you refer to.
