Response

Many of the repayments are the same as those in Sir Thomas Legg’s report

However, the time period differs from that of Sir Thomas Legg’s report so there may be differences in the figures reported. In particular, repayments made as part of Sir Thomas Legg’s Review prior to 19 December 2009 are not included in this list. For earlier repayments please see Repayments made between 1st April 2009 and 18th December 2009.

Unlike the figures in the Legg report, the schedule includes payments across all the allowances. Also included are repayments associated with complaints upheld by the Committee on Standards and Privileges and those dealt with by the Department of Resources.

Business as usual repayments such as those relating to returned rental deposits or balancing payments from utilities companies paid through direct debit transactions are not included. These credits are reflected in the headline FOI figures for 2008/09 and 2009/10.
