In administering the Scheme we adhere to these principles.
Diversity – we will take account of MPs’ diverse working arrangements and treat MPs fairly, so they are not disadvantaged or advantaged financially because of the Scheme.
Transparency – we will operate transparently, making information about MPs’ expenditure accessible to the public.
Value for money – we will administer the Scheme efficiently and cost-effectively.
Proportionality – we will regulate proportionately and effectively.
We have also adopted and are committed to the UK Parliament Behaviour Code.
