In December 2014, the Assembly passed the Public Sector and MPP Accountability and Transparency Act, 2014. This act amended the Legislative Assembly Act to add section 68, which establishes a duty for the Speaker to post online information respecting payments made to Members of the Assembly for travel, accommodation, meals, and hospitality expenses.
Additionally, rules for the posting of travel, meal, and hospitality expenses for Leaders of the Opposition and their staff are governed by Cabinet Ministers’ and Opposition Leaders’ Expenses Review and Accountability Act, 2002, and Public Sector Expenses Review Act, 2009.
Please visit the links below to view the legislation establishing the posting of these expenses, the rules governing Members’ expense claims, and frequently asked questions.
