Expense claims made by MPs for alcoholic beverages

Request

I am making a request under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. I require the following information:

  • A list of expense claims made by members of parliament for alcoholic beverages, since May 2010 to the present day, including (but not limited to) the names of the individuals, the date the claim was made, the amount in GBP claimed, the item/category/type of expense, the reason provided by the claimant.


Response

The MPs’ Scheme of Business Costs and Expenses (the ‘Scheme’) explicitly prohibits claims for alcoholic beverages and we do not, therefore, hold the information you request.

For more information on the Scheme, you may wish to visit this link to the Scheme section of IPSA’s website.
