MPS’ BUSINESS COSTS AND EXPENSES FOR 2012/2013

IPSA has today published an annualised summary of claims by each MP for the 2012/13 financial year. Details can be found here.

The Scheme IPSA introduced in 2010 has saved over £35 million since its inception, compared to the House of Commons regime we replaced.
The total claimed by MPs for non-payroll expenses in the 2012/13 financial year is £23.8 million. This has fallen from £34.7 million in 2008/09, the year before the expenses scandal and IPSA’s creation.

 

In addition to aggregate data, IPSA has also published annual data on the total amounts spent on:
·         Disability Assistance
·         Security Assistance
·          Reward and Recognition payments
 
As well as aggregate information on claims, IPSA has published annual information on:
·         Staffing totals and employment of connected parties
·         MPs renting from other MPs
·         Repayments of capital gains made under the transitional arrangements for mortgage interest subsidy.
This information is available on the IPSA website here.

In addition to annualised data for 2012/13, IPSA today released details of claims processed in April and May 2013. The details added to IPSA’s publication website include over 30,000 claims with a value of £4.2m.
Details of the claims added today can be downloaded using this link: http://www.parliamentary-standards.org.uk/Files/DataDownload_Latest.csv
 
ENDS
Notes to editor:
1. The information used for the annualised data includes all claims processed as of 31 May. It is possible that an MP has since made additional claims relating to the financial year 2012/13. Any such claims will be released in future rounds of publication.

2. The data is stored on the publication website by the date on which a cost is incurred. But, as a necessity of frequent publication, we add data to the publication website by the month in which a claim is processed. So, for example, if a cost was incurred in March, but the claim submitted and processed in April, it would be released in this cycle of publication but stored under March on the website.

3. Repayments are made to IPSA by MPs and third parties for a variety of reasons. These include: refunding items for which an MP no longer wishes to claim; refunding payment card transactions for which an MP does not wish to claim; and where an MP has received a rebate or refund from a third party, for example on their business rates or utility bills.

So my energy bills go up and up ... Can I claim any expenses for keeping warm? No, put I can wear another sweater ... Of course I can't get any help, Cameron's liars need the money for their second homes

Most MPs do nothing for the people. Let the MP’s pay their own expenses.


Buy an old rusting prison ship from the USA, moor it by the H.O.P. and let the MP’s live there. The vast majority of the MP’s past & present have wrecked the country and deserve no better.

Mr L Timewell

All MP should be treated the same in wages and expenses as public sector workers and should not have any special treatment

WHY IS'NT THE BEDROOM TAX APPLIED TO MP'S.


Taxpayers pay towards MP's second homes,so surely the bedroom tax should apply in the interest of FAIRNESS you understand.

Why not Consider Housing Most MPs in Brixton Prison by converting a wing to Housing?


This would be safe & secure for most of the MP’s, in easy reach of the H.O.P. and cheap for the taxpayer. The Bonus for the MPs would be that if any MP in future where found guilty of fiddling their expenses then they would not need to move.
