Details relating to five MPs' constituency offices
IPSA holds the information that you have requested.
Under the Scheme of MPs' Business Costs and Expenses ('the Scheme'), office costs is provided to meet the costs of running, equipping and maintaining an office (or offices). This includes the renting of one or more premises to be used as a constituency office, each of which must be registered with IPSA before a rental claim is made.
Where the constituency office is to be rented from a political party or constituency association:
the MP must provide a valuation of the market rate for the contract, prepared by a RICS registered surveyor, and
the rent must not exceed the market rate.
If an MP shares a constituency office with another MP, a member of the European Parliament, the Scottish Parliament, the National Assembly for Wales or the Northern Ireland Assembly, office costs may only be claimed for the appropriate proportion of the rent and other office costs.
Details of all claims made by MPs, including claims for office rent and other office costs, are published on our website.
Please find below the information requested.
