Response

Under the Scheme of MPs' Business Costs and Expenses ('the Scheme'), office costs is provided to meet the costs of running, equipping and maintaining an office (or offices). This includes the renting of one or more premises to be used as a constituency office, which must be registered with IPSA before a rental claim is made.

IPSA does not hold invoices or receipts you have requested. This is because payments have been made directly to the landlord in accordance with Paragraph 3 of Annex C of the Scheme entitled ‘’Direct payments for rent’’.

The information related to staffing that you have requested, is available under the ‘’Other Financial Information’’ tab on our website.
