Volunteers registered by MPs with IPSA in 2015-16 and 2016-17
IPSA holds the information that you have requested.
Under the MPs’ Scheme of Business Costs and Expenses (‘the Scheme’), Staffing Expenditure may be claimed to meet the costs of incidental expenses incurred by volunteers. MPs who engage volunteers must submit a signed volunteer arrangement with the volunteer to IPSA before any claims for incidental expenses will be made. The signed arrangement must comply with the model volunteer arrangement published by IPSA. Incidental expenses are limited to reasonable travel and food, and non-alcoholic drinks.
Volunteers are not required to carry out specific duties for the MP, and they are assisting the MP with his or her duties on a voluntary basis. This often includes students on short periods of work experience, or individuals who simply require reimbursement for costs incurred on a one-day event.
Expenses incurred by volunteers are often paid to the MP who then reimburses the volunteer themselves. Details of all such claims are published on our publication website.
Please find below, at Annex A, the total number of volunteers registered by each MP with IPSA, broken down by 2015-16 and 2016-17 (to date).
