MPs’ staffing and business costs

MPs are elected to represent your interests and concerns at a national level. They receive public funding which allows them to run a local office and employ staff.  

We allocate specific budgets to MPs to pay for these roles and activities.

The Scheme of MPs’ Staffing and Business Costs sets the rules on what MPs can and can’t make claims for.
