Details of MPs' annual salaries

Request

I am looking for the data you have on the following MP’s current annual salaries:

  • Abbott, Ms Diane (Labour), Hackney North and Stoke Newington

  • Afriyie, Adam (Conservative), Windsor

  • Allen, Heidi (Liberal Democrat), South Cambridgeshire

Please provide the information in the form of a written email response or Word document.


Response

I can confirm that we hold information relevant to your request. All MPs receive the same annual basic salary with additional salaries for those who chair select committees or who sit on a panel. This information is published on the IPSA website.

To find out if a particular MP received an additional salary, and the reason for this, search for the MP then look under Other Financial Information, MP Payroll .

As the information is reasonably accessible from the website, it is subject to a Refusal Notice under section 21 of FOIA.

Section 21

The Freedom of Information Act states we are not required to provide information that is accessible by other means. Therefore, as the information you have requested is already available on our website, under section 21 of the Act (information accessible to applicant by other means) IPSA is not obliged to provide the information you have requested.
