Response

IPSA holds the information that you request.

Following the 2017 General Election, winding-up meetings were held with departing MPs, to discuss the support provided by both IPSA and the House of Commons during the two-month winding-up period. These meetings were held in the days following the Election, including over the weekend, and were managed by IPSA’s Departing Members’ Team, consisting of six staff members. A total of 68 hours of overtime was worked by the Departing Members’ Team over the course of the weekend following the election.
