Publication of MPs’ Allowances

17 June 2009

From 18 June 2009 the public will be able to view printed documents and receipts relating to MPs’ claims dating back to 2004/05 and up to 2007/08.

More than a million printed documents and receipts have been scanned electronically over the last year in a major publishing operation to make information on MPs’ allowances freely available to the public online.

The Members Estimate Committee decided that printed documents and receipts relating to MPs’ Additional Costs Allowance (ACA), Incidental Expenses Provision (IEP) and Communications Allowance claims dating back to 2004/05 and up to 2007/08, together with details of stationery and postage costs covering the same period, should be published on the Parliament website.
