Request

Back in 2010 I asked for the names of MP's who had asked for a "loan" of £4000 (the maximum).   Your department kindly supplied the answers. 

In reply I added this paragraph:

"Looking over the multitude of those MP's who had to borrow £4000 to tide them over, I cannot help thinking that some MP's are being "bloody minded" in the sums they got under the scheme; why would an MP need to borrow £3877.50 (D. Grieve) or another silly loan for £1116.25 (K. Buck) or one for £2515.63 (N. Morgan) - one would think these high earners could manage to juggle their accounts without the need for petty cash and loading IPSA with the need to keep tabs on £122.50 still owning from Mr D. Grieve and other MP's with odd IOU's. "

I would like to know now the dates these three MPS fully repaid their loans.

  • Grieve / K. Buck /  N.Morgan

I would particularly like to know the dates Mr Grieve payed back the £3877.50 - including the date he paid back the last £122.50 that was left outstanding.
