MPs who employ relatives
IPSA does not hold the information that you request.
The MPs’ Scheme of Business Costs and Expenses (‘the Scheme’) defines the term ‘connected party’ as:
A spouse, civil partner or cohabiting partner of the member;
parent, child, grandparent, grandchild, sibling, uncle, aunt, nephew or niece of the member or of a spouse, civil partner or cohabiting partner of the member; or
a body corporate, a firm or a trust with which the MP is connected as defined in section 252 of the Companies Act 2006.
As IPSA does not include relatives of other MPs under its definition of ‘connected party’, we do not hold a specific record of the employment of such individuals. IPSA therefore does not hold the information requested.
