Members’ Allowances Finally Published

MPS’ ALLOWANCES, for the period 2004/05 to 2007/08, were finally published this morning on the Website, in the form of a searchable database.

The claims include:-

  • The Additional Costs Allowance — paid to reimburse Members for necessary costs incurred when staying overnight away from their main home.
  • The Incidental Expenses Provision — the costs associated with running an office.
  • The Communications Allowance — introduced in 2007/08 which provides funds for communication with constituents.

Data is provided in the form of downloadable PDF files containing redacted scanned documents.
