Early Day Motions

As of August 2010, Jason made the decision to no longer sign Early Day Motions (EDMs), with the notable exception of EDM 432. He has joined a number of his Parliamentary colleagues in supporting their abolition, as getting rid of EDMs would save around £1million of taxpayer’s money each year.

Expenses

All MPs are allowed to claim allowances for costs which they may incur during the course of their Parliamentary duties.

The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) is an independent body created by the Parliamentary Standards Act 2009. It establishes and monitors the expenses scheme for Members of the House of Commons, and is responsible for paying their salaries and expenses.

Following revisions to the Parliamentary Standards Act in April 2010 (via the Constitutional Reform and Governance Act), IPSA was also given responsibility for setting the level of MPs’ salaries.

For details of the work of the IPSA, please click here.

Although eligible to do so, Jason does not claim for the following:

  • Petty cash purchases.
  • Food and drink costs.
