Response

IPSA holds the information that you request.

Under the Scheme of MPs’ Business Costs and Expenses (‘the Scheme’), claims may be made for the staffing and business costs by MPs or others, which are in support of the MP’s parliamentary functions.

The information that you have requested is already published on our website.

In the top right-hand corner, select the financial year you are interested in. Then select the ‘individual claims’ spreadsheet from the drop-down menu, and download the spreadsheet. This gives you access to the spreadsheet. Specific categories of claims may be selected by using the filters on the top row or by searching the spreadsheet for specific terms.

The Freedom of Information Act states that information that is accessible by other means is not subject to release. Therefore, as the information you have requested is already available on our website, it is exempt from disclosure under section 21 of the Act (information accessible to applicant by other means).

This concludes our response to your request.
