Redundancy payments for MPs affected by boundary changes
Under the MPs’ Scheme of Business Costs and Expenses (‘the Scheme’), MPs will be eligible to receive a Loss of Office Payment if they lose their seat at a General Election, subject to conditions specified in Chapter Eight of the Scheme. However, this applies only where the MP has lost his or her seat at a General Election and not where boundary changes result in the loss of a seat. The current edition of the Scheme does not provide for any payments to be made to MPs in the event of boundary changes.
