As such, we do not hold information about restrictions which apply to MPs or former MPs in respect of work or benefits outside of their parliamentary duties.

However, some of the information you request may be available in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests, which is separately administered by the House of Commons.

View copies of the Registers on the Parliamentary website.

The Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards Office may also be able to provide you with further information.
