Register of Members' Financial Interests

The main purpose of the Register is to provide information about any financial interest which a Member has, or any benefit which he or she receives, which others might reasonably consider to influence his or her actions or words as a Member of Parliament.

Members must register any change to their registrable interests within 28 days. Interests subject to registration are set out in detail in the Guide to the Rules relating to the Conduct of Members, as approved by the House on 17 March 2015. Interests which arose before 7 May 2015 are registered in accordance with the 2012 Guide.

The Register is maintained by the Parliamentary for Commissioner for Standards. It is updated fortnightly online when the House is sitting, and less frequently at other times. Interests remain on the Register for twelve months after they have expired.
