Severance pay paid to MPs' staff alongside severance pay policy

Request

I am asking these questions under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act.

  1. Can you please disclose whether, between 7 May 2010 and 1 October 2013, any MPs have given any of their departing staff severance pay or equivalent?

  2. If the answer to the above question is yes, can you please name each MP, each staff member and their job title, and the amount of money that the departing staff member received, together with the date on which the departing staff member received their severance pay? I am seeking full disclosure of all obtainable details.

  3. I would be grateful if you could also disclose all parliamentary rules regarding severance pay.


Response

IPSA does not hold the information that you request.
