Mr Andrew Mackay and Ms Julie Kirkbride - Standards and Privileges Committee Contents

54.  Letter to the Commissioner from the Director of Strategic Projects, Department of Resources, 6 September 2010

Thank you for your letter of 2nd September.

I confirm that before 2003 Members were required to identify where their Additional Cost Allowance was incurred, but that they were not required to identify the location or address of their main or second home in the regular claims they submitted. At the operational level, therefore, departmental staff would not have been aware that Mr Mackay was making claims on a property which was also Ms Kirkbride's main home.

Please let me know if I can help further.
