House of Commons stationery and postage paid envelope costs per Member

The House of Commons provides a cash limited sum per year for the provision of postage paid envelopes and House of Commons stationery to all Members; this sum is in addition to any costs that may be reimbursed under the IPSA expenses scheme.

The current rules for the use of stationery and postage-paid envelopes provided by the House of Commons, and for the use of the Crowned Portcullis, were published by the Members Estimate Committee in their first report of session 2014–15:

Rules for MPs for the use of stationery and postage-paid envelopes provided by the House of Commons.

This budget is in addition to any stationery and postage costs which Members may have reimbursed under IPSA’s Expenses Scheme.  The House of Commons Commission has stated that the costs incurred by each Member on House provided stationery and postage are published; the figures relate only to current Members of the 2010 Parliament.
