Have your say in branch’s written submission to Commons inquiry on IPSA

The Adam Afriyie-led Committee on Members’ Expenses is to review the operation of the Parliamentary Standards Act 2009, which established IPSA. The branch will be submitting a response on behalf of our members who have been affected by the Act. Please forward your comments and evidence to lauren.edwards@unitepsbranch.org by Monday 29 August.

In particular the committee will consider how to ensure:

  • value for money for taxpayers
  • accountability
  • public confidence in Parliament
  • the ability of Members to fulfil their duties effectively
  • fairness for less well-off Members and those with families
  • that Members are not deterred from submitting legitimate claims
