Number of MPs who have a home office and number of MPs with a constituency office
IPSA holds the information that you request.
Under the terms of the MPs’ Scheme of Business Costs and Expenses (‘the Scheme’), claims for utilities, business rates, insurance and telephone/internet costs will only be allowed where the office has been registered with IPSA. Where the costs are incurred at an MP’s or staff member’s home, that home must be registered with IPSA as a ‘home office’.
Since IPSA was established in 2010, 103 MPs have registered a home office with IPSA.
According to our records, in the financial year 2013-14, 567 MPs rented a constituency office.
