Proactive quarterly publication of statistics, related to the Independent Grievance and Complaints Scheme, are published on Parliament’s website. Where there are fewer than 10 cases, the exact number is not published in order to maintain the confidentiality of the parties involved. More detailed breakdown of statistics, as recommended in the Alison Stanley six-month review, are currently being collated. This includes complaints made by user groups, e.g. against MPs, House staff, MPs’ staff. This information will be reviewed and published with the next quarterly statistics in mid-October, whilst ensuring that the confidentiality of those concerned is maintained.
