Details of legal aid provided to MPs
Thank you for your Freedom of Information request. I'm afraid that IPSA does not hold the information you have requested for the following reasons:
The cases in question stemmed from the previous Parliament, for which IPSA has no remit. IPSA's new system of setting and regulating MPs' expenses came into effect on 7 May 2010, the day after the last General Election. The individuals you refer to had ceased to be MPs at that time.
The Legal Services Commission is responsible for legal aid matters. I would recommend that you contact the Commission to further your request. Contact details are as follows: FOI.STAFF.CF@legalservices.gsi.gov.uk, Legal Services Commission, 4 Abbey Orchard Street, London, SW1P 2BS. http://www.legalservices.gov.uk/aboutus/ati/how_to_make_foi_request.asp
