Details relating to the ethnic background and nationality of MPs' staff members


Response

I can confirm that IPSA does not hold the information that falls within the description specified in your request.

IPSA is the independent body responsible for setting and paying Members of the House of Commons and their staff their salaries and expenses. IPSA does not play any part in the recruitment of individual members of staff employed by MPs. Given that IPSA is not the formal employer of MPs’ staff members, we do not collect information relating to the nationality or ethnic background of any individuals employed by an MP.
