Statute to harmonize MEPs salaries as of July 2009

Die Anfrage wurde abgelehnt durch Europäisches Parlament.

Dear European Parliament,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

The statute on the harmonization of the salaries for MEPs that was passed on the 23 June 2005 included the provison that allowed MEPs to keep being paid their old salaries (from July 2009) onwards, if the would become re-elected.
Only 33 MEPs did exercise this option to keep their old national salaries. Who have those MEPs been?

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Christian

Dear Registre,

May I ask you if you got the requested information, i.e., the names and respective member states of the MEPs?
So far, I did not get a response.

Dear Mr Christian,

 

The Citizens’ Enquiries Unit of the European Parliament (EP) has been
asked to reply to your request of 13 March 2015 for information concerning
MEPs' salaries.

Firstly, we would thank you for your interest in the European Parliament.

We would inform you that, as regards applications for access to breakdowns
of allowances and expenditure of Members, the EP has developed, based on
best practises observed in national parliaments, a proactive policy
publishing on its [1]Europarl website general information on the
allowances Members are entitled to and the rules governing their
allocation, which may be found on [2]this webpage.

On the other hand, with regard to your particular request, we would inform
you that in the absence of any other legal basis that would permit such
transfer, information on the financial situation of individual Members is
not made public for reasons of personal data protection, although Members
are free to disclose additional information.

More information on personal data protection is available on [3]this EP
fact sheet.

 

We thank you for contacting the European Parliament.

Yours sincerely,

 

Citizens' Enquiries Unit

Dear European Parliament,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of European Parliament's handling of my FOI request 'Statute to harmonize MEPs salaries as of July 2009'.

Rather than the names of the MEPs, I would like to request the member state they have been representing. I.e., I would like to know how many MEPs of which member state chose to receive the old payment scheme.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: http://www.asktheeu.org/en/request/statu...

Yours faithfully,

Christian
