Estimated cost of winding up for MPs not standing at 2015 election
IPSA holds the information that you request.
IPSA prepares a formal estimate of resources every year, which contains our budget for the forthcoming financial year. This Estimate is submitted to and approved by the Speaker’s Committee for the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (SCIPSA). You can find more information about SCIPSA via the following link: http://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/other-committees/speakers-committee-for-the-independent-parliamentary-standards-authority/.
Contained within our Estimate for the forthcoming financial year are projected costs relating to MPs who are standing down or lose their seats. These costs were calculated based on the estimated position in January 2015.
|Winding up all MPs offices||13,352|
|Standing down MPs: staff redundancy||2,140|
|Defeated MP: staff redundancy||3,000|
 Winding-Up Expenditure is designed to meet the cost of completing the outstanding parliamentary functions of a person who ceases to be an MP.
