Claims by MPs for newspapers

Request

What is the total sum of expenses claimed by MPs to purchase newspapers in the period 2011-12.


Response

IPSA holds the information that you request.

The information for 2011/12 is available on our website, but for ease of reference we undertook a search and found that a total of £69,685.69 was claimed by MPs for newspapers.

At the beginning of the current financial year, we introduced changes that made the website more specifically searchable for claims for newspapers.  You may view the published information by visiting our publication website.  Details of claims for expenses are published in a two month cycle, three months in arrears. The next publication date for expense claims is Thursday 8 November 2012.
