Response

IPSA holds the information that you request.

In your requests, you asked for the name of the individual or company the money was paid to.  We have interpreted your FOI requests to ask for the names of the individuals or companies the services were provided by. 

Please find at Annex A the names of individuals or companies that have provided a service to MPs for the respective claim numbers you have requested, accompanied by the information already published on our website describing each claim.

It should be noted that IPSA pays claims for business costs and expenses by a variety of methods – by reimbursement to the MP, via the payment card and direct to the supplier – and, therefore, not all payments are made direct to suppliers.
