Thursday 11 March 2010

House of Commons Commission

Members: Allowances

To ask the hon. Member for North Devon, representing the House of Commons Commission pursuant to the answer of 22 February 2010, Official Report, column 38W, on Members: allowances, how much has been spent under each budgetary heading referred to in the answer.

[Official Report, 8 March 2010, Vol. 507, c. 3-4W.]

Letter of correction from Mr. Nick Harvey:

An error has been identified in the answer given to the right hon. Member for Birkenhead (Mr. Field) on 8 March 2010. The original answer did not include bills received after the date for answer but before the answer was sent. It did not therefore fully reflect “the costs to date”.

The original answer was as follows: (319926)

The costs to date, inclusive of VAT, are as follows:
