Some information is held by the House of Commons.

Please note the following points about this data:

  • We do not hold a breakdown of expenses claimed in relation to the 2001 commission, only the total cost.
  • An expenses payment of £422.84 was made to David Godbold in 2005, but we no longer hold details of what these expenses were.
