Request

I request, under the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000, a detailed and explanatory description of the nature and details of delivery of the regular consultation that my Conservative MP Conor Burns has contracted to Trant Construction Ltd, Rushington, Southampton SO40 9LT since June 2011.

According to the Register of MP's Interests, Conor Burns has received exactly £10,000 quarterly for precisely 30 hours of work in all but one quarter in 2012, from between June 2011 until the present day. This interest is registered ambiguously as "consultation". I formally request the details of this consultation and, if applicable, a full explainantion where the work carried out may constitute a conflict of interest with Conor Burns duties as a an acting MP for Bournemouth West. I also request that an explanation be given as to why work done in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014, while Conor Burns was a sitting MP, was not declared (according to the register) until 2014 or '15.

Response

IPSA does not hold the information that you request.

IPSA is responsible only for administering and regulating claims made by MPs under the MPs’ Scheme of Business Costs and Expenses and does not therefore hold information on MPs’ outside interests.

The Register of Members’ Financial Interests is maintained by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards (‘the Commissioner’), within the House of Commons. You can find out more about the work of the Commissioner on her website, via the following address: http://www.parliament.uk/pcs.

For any further information relating to the Register of Members’ Financial Interests, you should contact the Commissioner, via standardscommissioner@parliament.uk.
