The private sector is more efficient

An extract from yesterday's Hansard.

Leader of the House
Members: Allowances

John Mann: To ask the Leader of the House how many current hon. Members have redesignated their main home for the purposes of the additional costs allowance on three or more occasions. [276044]

Chris Bryant: It is not possible to provide this information without going through each individual Member's paper records as the information as requested is not held electronically and nomination forms, indicating where a main and second home are located, were only required from 2003 onwards.

The answer could therefore be provided only at disproportionate cost.

Personally, I would have just called the Daily Telegraph. They have it all on CD.
