Under the Freedom of Information Act, please may I request details of all parliamentary expenses claims submitted by Enfield North MP, Joan Ryan, between 8 May 2015 and 21 July 2015.
IPSA publishes all claims made by MPs for business costs and expenses on a dedicated publication website. You can access the publication website via the following link: http://www.parliamentary-standards.org.uk/
Claims are published in two-month tranches, three months after they have been processed and validated. The next publication date is 10 September 2015, which will cover those claims processed by IPSA during April and May 2015. The publication schedule can be found at the following address: http://www.parliamentary-standards.org.uk/files/Publication_dates.pdf.
You can find out more about the information we publish on MPs’ business costs and expenses in our Publication Policy, which is available on our website at the following address: http://www.parliamentarystandards.org.uk/publicationsdocs/IPSA%20Publication%20Policy.pdf.
Section 22(1) of the FOIA states that information intended for future publication is also exempt from release. We have considered whether the public interest in releasing the information outweighs the application of the exemption. It is our opinion that the public interest is best served by publishing a full list rather than on an ad hoc basis, as in this way a clear and complete set of information is published, avoiding any potential confusion. It is for this reason that the application of the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosure at this stage.
