Gifts and hospitality received by IPSA Board Members and staff


I would like to request details of all hospitality accepted by employees of, members of the board of and members of the Senior Leadership Team of the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority. I understand that it is normal practice for these persons to make an official record of hospitality received.

I am requesting these details for all staff and others mentioned above since the creation of the Authority from the date of the Authority’s first creation. Given that the Authority has not existed for long, I expect that you will be able to provide these details without exceeding the costs limit.


In accordance with Section 21 of the FOIA (information accessible by other means) I refer you to the IPSA website where details of expenses and hospitality incurred by the IPSA board and senior staff are published on a quarterly basis. The information you are seeking can be found under the Publications section of the website:

I can confirm that no other staff members at IPSA have received any gifts or hospitality to date.
