Response

IPSA does not hold the information that you have requested.

Ms Fernandes has not made any claims under the MPs’ Scheme of Business Costs and Expenses (‘the Scheme’) for expenditure relating to the trip in question.

For reference, MPs are only permitted to claim Travel and Subsistence Expenditure for journeys which are necessary for the performance of their parliamentary functions. In relation to travel outside the UK, claims are only permitted for up to three return journeys per year to the national Parliaments of Council of Europe member states, or institutions or agencies of the European Union.
