Westminster-based branch members are encouraged to book a time in January to speak to IPSA about some of the staffing issues coming out of their current consultation on the MPs’ Expenses Scheme. The following message went out in the most recent IPSA bulletin for staff:
Annual review – staff sessions
As you know, our current consultation on the Annual Review of the MP’s Scheme of Expenses and Costs focuses on staffing provisions. We are keen that MPs’ staff members contribute their knowledge and experience on the matters under consultation. Of course, staff members can submit responses on the consultation, but in addition we are running two staff sessions in January. We will use these two hour sessions to get feedback from staff on the issues raised in our current consultation.
The sessions will be held in the Palace of Westminster on the following dates;
- 12 January 2012 at 10-12
- 19 January 2012 at 2-4
We have limited spaces for these, so please book if you wish to attend. To book a place, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject heading of FAO: Karen Hennessy – Staff session.
If you aren’t able to make one of these sessions, please remember you can contribute to the branch’s response as well as sending in your own comments. More information about how to help shape the branch’s response is available here.
