Expense claims made by Margaret Moran

Request

After a FOI request to the House of Commons titled "Amount of Fraudulent Expenses repaid by former MP Margaret Moran" submitted on the 19th December 2012, the response detailed the fact that out of £53,000 fraudulently claimed, only £6,000 had been repaid and that "the House Service is taking advice about the possibility of seeking further reimbursement from her."

I would like to know if any of the missing £47,000 has been repaid yet, if there is a payment plan in place to recover the money in installments and what advice has been received to enable the receipt of further reimbursement.


Response

IPSA does not hold the information that you request.

Disputes over expense claims made before IPSA was established in May 2010 are not handled by IPSA, and remain the responsibility of the House of Commons.  They may hold the information you request.  To request this information, you may wish to contact the House of Commons at foicommons@parliament.uk.
