Number and value of subscriptions to the European Research Group from 1 January 2015 up until 1 March 2020


Can you provide me with the total number and value of subscriptions to the European Research Group for each year from January 1, 2015 up until March 1, 2020.


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

IPSA publish this information on an annual basis on our website.

Using the drop-down menu at the top of the page, you will need to select a financial year alongside the option for ‘individual claims’, which will open a spreadsheet containing all individual claims made that financial year. You can filter on either the ‘Details’ or ‘Short Description’ columns for ‘ERG’  and ‘European Research Group’ to identify relevant claims.

This will provide you with the names of all MPs who have made claims for subscriptions to the ERG in each financial year, alongside the total amount paid.

As this information is available on our website it is subject to a Refusal Notice under section 21 of the FOIA, because it is reasonably accessible by other means.
