The information requested falls within the responsibility of the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority. I have asked IPSA to reply.

Letter from Andrew McDonald, dated 5 September 2013

As Chief Executive of the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking about the proposals of an annual reporting mechanism for MPs.

IPSA has proposed an annual reporting mechanism for MPs in the next Parliament in its consultation paper ‘MPs' Pay and Pensions: A New Package, July 2013’. The precise nature of any such report, or its means of communication, have not yet been agreed. Therefore it is too early to make any observations about funding.
