Peers: Allowances

Question for The Senior Deputy Speaker

UIN HL2692, tabled on 18 October 2022

To ask the Senior Deputy Speaker what would be the rate of attendance allowance for Members of the House of Lords in October 2022 if it had been uprated in line with inflation since it was introduced at £300.

The Daily Allowance rate was introduced on 1 October 2010 at £300 per day. Consumer Price Index (CPI) figures for October 2022 are expected to be released by the Office for National Statistics on 16 November. It is therefore not yet possible to calculate a figure for the Daily Allowance adjusted for inflation by CPI for the month of October 2022.

Based on September CPI figures, if the Daily Allowance rate had been adjusted annually for inflation, it would be £417 per day from 1 September 2022.
