Expenses claimed by politicians who attended the 2012 Bilderberg meeting

Request

Under the Freedom of Information Act I would like to have the expenses claims by politicians who attended the Bilderberg Meeting in Virginia in 2012 for my blog readers.


Response

IPSA does not hold the information that you request.

Under the MPs’ Scheme of Business Costs and Expenses (‘the Scheme’) MPs may claim for “Travel and Subsistence Expenditure for journeys which are necessary for the performance of their parliamentary functions”. Attendance at meetings of international delegations, such as the one you mention, would not, therefore, be paid under the Scheme.

You may be interested to know that IPSA publishes all claims for business costs and expenses on our website every two months, three months in arrears.  You may view the published information via this link to our publication website.
