Sanctions for non-compliance with payment card rules

Request

Please kindly provide a list of sanctions you have available to penalise MPs who break your rules on taxpayer-funded credit card usage.

We know that one Tory MP used this card to pay for her private Amazon Prime subscription. 


Response

I can confirm that we hold information relevant to your request.

The Scheme of MPs’ Business Costs and Expenses sets out the principles and rules about making claims for costs and expenses. It also explains how IPSA reviews the claims and the next steps in the process.

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