Receipt for claim by Gordon Brown for pens
Under the MPs’ Scheme of Business Costs and Expenses (‘the Scheme’), Office Costs Expenditure (OCE) is provided to meet the costs of equipping and running and MP’s office. MPs are entitled to exercise discretion over claim for items that meet the purposes of the OCE budget, provided that the claims meet the general conditions of the Scheme.
Paragraph 1.1 of the Scheme states that all claims for reimbursement under the Scheme must be supported by evidence. As such, we hold all supporting documentation provided in support of claims made by MPs.
At the time of your request, we were in receipt of a separate request for a copy of the same receipt. We have since responded to that requested and provided a copy of the receipt you have requested.
We publish responses to all requests we receive under the FOIA on our website. The response to the separate request can be found here.
The receipt you have requested can be found via the following link: http://parliamentarystandards.org.uk/transparency/FOI/2015-16%20Freedom%20of%20information%20requests%20and%20responses/CAS-16262%20-%20Receipt%201.pdf
