Can you please tell me if my local MP claims expenses for his children as mentioned in today's Telegragh?
My MP is Douglas Alexander who is the MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire South.
IPSA holds the information that you request.
You may be aware that we recently responded to a Freedom of Information request (reference F1314-023), to which the article referred, asking for information relating to Members of Parliament who had made registrations for dependants. We routinely publish responses to FOI requests on our website and you can view our response to this request via this link.
As you will see from our response, Douglas Alexander MP registered dependants in the financial year 2010/11.
