Response

IPSA holds the information that you request.

Details of all claims made by every MP since IPSA was established in May 2010 are published on our publication website. This can be accessed via the tab for ‘MPs’ Expenses’ on our main website, or directly at the following address: http://www.parliamentary-standards.org.uk/

Using the search function, you can search for all claims made by Ms Thomson since she was elected, which will provide you with the amount claimed, a description of the expense, the date, whether it was approved or rejected. The FOIA states that information that is accessible by other means is not subject to release. Therefore, as the information you have requested is already available on our website, it is exempt from disclosure under section 21 of the FOIA (information accessible to applicant by other means).

We publish details of claims every two months, covering claims processed by IPSA four months beforehand. You can find a copy of our publication schedule at the following address, which provides details of when claims processed by IPSA will be published: http://www.parliamentary-standards.org.uk/files/Publication_dates.pdf

You may also be interested in our publication policy, which states all the information that we will publish and when we will publish it. This can be found at the following address: http://www.parliamentarystandards.org.uk/publicationsdocs/IPSA%20Publication%20Policy.pdf.
