Claims by members of the Cabinet for mobile phone usage
Under the MPs’ Scheme of Business Costs and Expenses (‘the Scheme’), Office Costs Expenditure (OCE) is provided to meet the costs of renting, equipping and running an MP’s office or offices and surgeries. This includes any mobile phone costs incurred by an MP in the exercise of their parliamentary functions.
We publish details of all claims made by MPs for business costs and expenses on our publication website, which can be found at the following address: http://www.parliamentary-standards.org.uk/. Using the search function, you can search for all claims by members of the Cabinet for monthly mobile phone charges.
MPs are required to provide documentation in support of claims made for business costs; in the case of mobile phone usage this would most likely take the form of a monthly invoice. In processing your request for information, we have conducted a search of claims made by members of the Cabinet for monthly mobile phone charges in the last six months. This information relates only to claims by the Cabinet member themselves, and not for staff members.
Where claims have been made, we have inspected the supporting documentation provided by the MP and extracted the information that you requested. In some instances, the name of the network price plan was not contained on the invoice and, as such, IPSA does not hold this information.
