Copy of train ticket submitted by John Whittingdale MP
IPSA does not hold the information that you request.
Under the MPs’ Scheme of Business Costs and Expenses (‘the Scheme’), MPs can use an IPSA-issued payment card to pay for any business cost or expense allowable under the Scheme. Details of all payments made on the card are then provided to IPSA by the card provider and are approved or rejected by IPSA’s validators. Claims which are rejected are then required to be repaid to IPSA by the MP.
In the instance to which you refer, Mr Whittingdale bought a ticket for the Gatwick Express on his payment card, which was confirmed to IPSA by the card provider. As this was an allowable business cost under the Scheme, and the claim amount reconciled with the standard fare for the Gatwick Express, no further supporting documentation was required from Mr Whittingdale.
