Repayments by Simon Danczuk MP
As you may be aware, the Compliance Officer for IPSA is an independent office-holder, responsible for investigating complaints that an MP has been paid an amount by IPSA under the MPs’ Scheme of Business Costs and Expenses (‘the Scheme’), to which they were not entitled.
For the purposes of the FOIA, IPSA and the Compliance Officer for IPSA are two separate public authorities. Information held by IPSA is not necessarily held by the Compliance Officer (and vice versa).
As such, we do not hold any record of Mr Danczuk having repaid any money to IPSA with relation to overtime payments made to members of his staff.
No guidance has been provided to Mr Danczuk by the Compliance Officer for IPSA regarding future claims for staff overtime.
