Request

Could I please make a Freedom of Information request to ask how many of the UK Parliament’s MP’s are signed up to support a charity from pay, via a Payroll Giving/ Give As You Earn scheme (pre-or post tax).

 

Response

IPSA holds the information that you request.

As of 15 March 2016, there are 27 Members of Parliament who are signed up to make a donation to charity in March’s payroll via the Give As You Earn scheme.

There are, of course, many different ways of donating to charity and the information held by IPSA does not necessarily reflect the total number of MPs who donate to charity.
