Information relating to claims made by Iain McKenzie MP
IPSA holds some of the information that you request.
As you may be aware, Members of Parliament are permitted, under the MPs’ Scheme of Business Costs and Expenses (‘the Scheme’), to claim for expenses legitimately incurred whilst carrying out their parliamentary duties and are required to certify that this is the case before submitting claims.
Start Up Expenditure is available to MPs elected to Parliament for the first time for a particular constituency. Chapter 8 of the Scheme states that MPs can claim, under the Start-Up Expenditure budget, the costs of setting up one or more constituency offices as a new MP, which includes the costs of recruiting members of staff.
Further, under Chapter 9 of the Scheme, travel and subsistence claims may be made for the costs of travel, and travel-related subsistence expenditure undertaken by an MP or others, which are necessarily incurred in the performance of the MP's parliamentary functions.
You can view a copy of the Scheme on our website.
Please find below the information you have requested, alongside the claim information already published on our website.
We have withheld the names of staff members, as this information is personal information. Section 40(2) provides that personal information about third parties is exempt information if one of the conditions set out in section 40(3) is satisfied. Under the FOI Act disclosure of this information would breach the fair processing principle (Principle 1) of the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA), where it would be unfair to those persons or is confidential. For further information, you may wish to visit the UK Legislation website.
