Request

Between the months of January 2015 to the end of June 2015 what was the total amount of cash found on the parliamentary estate?

 

Response

The total amount of cash found on the parliamentary estate and handed in to the House of Commons between 1 January 2015 and 30 June 2015 was £1,181.04 and $1.00. Unclaimed cash is donated to charity.

Our response only deals with cash handed in to the House of Commons, for which we hold records. The House of Lords is a separate public authority for the purposes of the Freedom of Information Act, and they may hold their own records regarding cash found on the parliamentary estate. You may therefore wish to consider forwarding your request to the House of Lords for any information they may hold.
