Information on responses to IPSA's consultation on MPs' pay and pensions
All responses to consultations carried out by IPSA are published on our website.
You can find the responses to the 2013 consultation on MPs’ pay and pensions within the ‘Pay and Pensions’ folder.
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).
A small number of respondents requested anonymity and/or that their responses were treated confidentially. In these instances, this information has been withheld from disclosure under section 40 of the FOIA.
Section 40(2) provides that personal information about third parties is exempt information if one of the conditions set out in section 40(3) is satisfied. Under the FOI Act disclosure of this information would breach the fair processing principle (Principle 1) of the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA), where it would be unfair to those persons or is confidential. For further information, you may wish to visit the UK Legislation website.
