Response

Under the MPs’ Scheme of Business Costs and Expenses (‘the Scheme’), Office Costs Expenditure (OCE) is provided to meet the costs of renting, equipping and running an MP’s office or offices and surgeries, where these costs are not claimable from other budgets under this Scheme, or from other sources. A full copy of the Scheme can be found on our website at the following address: http://parliamentarystandards.org.uk/IPSAMPs/Scheme/Documents/MPs%27%20Scheme%20of%20Business%20Costs%20and%20Expenses%20Seventh%20Edition%20(2015-16).pdf

In both instances, the name of the supplier on the invoice was ‘The Event Office Ltd’.

Paragraph 3.16 of the Scheme states that: ‘No costs may be claimed relating to the purchase of goods or services, where the MP or a connected party[1] is the provider of the goods or services in question’. We do not hold any information indicating that the supplier was a former employee or a connected party of the MP.

 

[1] The definition of a ‘connected party’ can be found at paragraph 3.15 of the Scheme.
