Dear Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority,

Are MP's, allowed to claim expenses for travel etc to a party conference?

Please outline what MP's are allowed to claim per week, what for and what criteria is applied to ensure that expenses do not excessively eat into public funds.

Yours faithfully,

Max Kerley
