Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority

Volume 497: debated on Monday 12 October 2009

Further to my statement of 16 September, about progress on the implementation of the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority, parliamentary approval for additional resources of £1,100,000 for this new expenditure will be sought in a winter supplementary estimate for the Ministry of Justice. Pending that approval, urgent expenditure estimated at £1,100,000 is being met by a repayable cash advance from the Contingencies Fund.

Parliamentary authority for expenditure by the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority will also be sought, in a new estimate.
