MPs claiming rent allowance for properties with 2 or more bedrooms

Request

How many MP's who are claiming rent allowances from IPSA are renting a property with 2 or more bedrooms?

I do not want this information to include names, addresses or multiple claims by the same MP.


Response

We have already provided an answer to this question under a previous FOI request (reference FOI2013-A158), which requested the number of MPs claiming rent for properties with more than one bedroom. 

You may view the full response to FOI2013-A158 here.

As you will see from this response, we conducted a test which showed that to provide the information requested, we would have exceeded the statutory cost limit stipulated in the FOIA.
