How many MPs donate to charity?

Request

How many of the UK Parliament’s MPs donate to charity from their pay under either a pre- or post-tax payroll giving scheme?


Response

I can confirm that IPSA holds the information that falls within the description specified in your request.

There are currently four Members of Parliament who make regular donations to charity 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.
