Response

IPSA does not hold the information that you request.

Under the Scheme of MPs’ Business Costs and Expenses (‘the Scheme’), an accommodation costs budget is provided to meet costs necessarily incurred by MPs as a result of working from two permanent locations.

 Non-London MPs may claim for accommodation costs in relation to a property at one location, which may be either: 

  1. in the London Area, or

  2. within the MP’s constituency, or within 20 miles of any point on the constituency boundary.

For more information, the full rules regarding accommodation costs (including IPSA’s requirements and the process for registering a property) can be found at Chapter Four of the Scheme, a copy of which can be found on our website.

As you may be aware, we publish details of all claims made by MPs for business costs and expenses on our website.

IPSA would not in any event ordinarily disclose information related to landlords or the location of their properties in accordance with section 38 (Health and Safety) and Section 40 (Personal Data) FOIA.

This concludes our response to your request.
