Details of interest free loans available to MPs
I can confirm that the information you have requested is due to be published on the IPSA website in July this year.
The information is therefore exempt under section 22(1) (information intended for future publication) of the FOIA. Although we recognise that there is a public interest in knowing which MPs have been given interest free loans. It is our opinion that it is in the greater public interest to publish the information at a set date, rather than on a piecemeal basis, which will mean that a clear and complete set of information is published, and will also avoid causing confusion. It is for these stated reasons that the application of the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosure.
