Information used to justify proposed MP pay rise
IPSA holds the information that you request.
As you may be aware, IPSA recently carried out a consultation on the reform of MPs’ pay and pensions. The consultation, which launched in July 2013, was accompanied by a recommendation paper, detailing the recommended package and the reasoning behind it. The consultation ran until October 2013, and was followed by a report listing the decisions made, which was published on 12 December 2013.
Both these documents, along with further information on the consultation, including background information, consultation responses, and details of polling carried out, contain the ‘justification’ for the recommended package. All of this information is available on our website.
The FOIA states that information that is accessible by other means is not subject to release. Therefore, as the information you have requested is already available on our website, it is exempt from disclosure under section 21 of the FOIA (information accessible to applicant by other means).
