Dear Mr Byrne,

 

This is a reply to your application concerning "any documents relating to
expenses claimed by all Irish MEPs since the last election in 2014 to
date".

 

The rules and general conditions including the broad financial
arrangements governing the exercise of the office of Members of the
European Parliament are set out in the Statute for Members of the European
Parliament (available under this link:
[1]https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/...).

 

The Statute for Members of the European Parliament is supplemented by the
Decision of the Bureau of 19 May and 9 July 2008 concerning implementing
measures for the Statute for Members of the European Parliament. This
document and all its subsequent amendments and updates are published in
the Official Journal of the European Union under the following link:

Over the course of the current legislature, which started in 2014, Irish
MEPs, as all MEPs, were entitled to 1) the reimbursement of travel
expenses, 2) the reimbursement of subsistence expenses, 3) a General
expenditure allowance, and 4) assistance from personal staff.

 

1)Travel expenses: in accordance with Articles 10 to 23 of the Decision of
the Bureau of 19 May and 9 July, Irish MEPs are entitled to the
reimbursement of the expenses sustained for duty travel relating to
meetings of the European Parliament (plenary, committee and political
group meetings) in Brussels or Strasbourg. They may also be refunded for
other travel outside their own Member State undertaken as part of their
work, and be reimbursed for up to 24 return journeys within their own
Member State.
