House of Lords: Expenses

Volume 704: debated on Monday 6 October 2008

The resolution of the House of 20 July 1994 provided for the limits of the subsistence and office cost allowances to be uprated annually on 1 August in line with the increase in the retail prices index over the previous 12 months to July.

Accordingly, the limits within which Lords may be reimbursed expenses incurred were increased with effect from 1 August 2008. The new limits are now as follows (the limits previously applicable are shown in brackets):

Overnight subsistence

£174.00 (£165.50)

Day subsistence

£86.50 (£82.50)

Office costs

£75.00 (£71.50)

Office costs for non-sitting periods

£3,000 (£2,860)

40 days @ £75.00 (£71.50)
