Request

Please can you let me have a breakdown of all the types and limits for Parliamentary Expenses an MP can Claim. For Instance:

  • MP's Salary per annum
  • Office Expenses
  • Staff Costs etc
Response

In response your request, I can advise that information regarding expenses an MP can claim is detailed in the MPs’ Expenses Scheme and the guidance note on the Employing of staff, which is published on the IPSA website www.parliamentarystandards.org.uk. I have attached a copy of the Expenses Scheme, a copy of the Expenses Scheme guidance and a copy of the guidance note on the Employment of Staff for your convenience. The information you have requested is therefore exempt from disclosure under section 21 of the FOIA (information accessible to applicant by other means) because it can be found on the IPSA website.
