Information relating to equality impact assessments
IPSA holds some of the information that you request.
Questions 1 and 3
Equality Impact Assessments (EIAs) have been completed for each Review of the MPs’ Scheme of Business Costs and Expenses. They are available via the consultation section of our website. Each EIA includes an assessment on any impact that the Scheme may have on MPs and their staff with protected characteristics.
No MP has requested contingency funding on the basis of the numbers of people within their constituency with protected characteristics. It has not, therefore, played a part in any decision on whether to grant any request for contingency funding. Were an MP to make an argument on this basis, IPSA would make its decision on funding in a manner consistent with its Equality Act duties.
