Petition Action

Ban MPs from claiming Christmas parties as part of their expenses.

Petition Details

In the current economic crisis it is not acceptable for the tax payer to pay for Christmas parties for MPs. This money could be diverted elsewhere with much better measurable impact on the welfare of the country.

Additional Information

With families struggling to pay household bills this is not the right time to start paying for luxuries that the majority of the general public cannot afford.

This petition was rejected

The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:

We can't accept your petition because the UK Government and Parliament aren't responsible for the issue you raise. The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) is responsible for deciding on MPs' expenses and pay. IPSA is independent of both Parliament and Government.
