The House of Commons Register of Members Interests

Key:
Interests are registered under the following ten categories.

1. Remunerated directorships
In this section Members are required to register any remunerated directorships, paying them more than £600 a year, which they hold in public or private companies. Members are also required to register directorships which are unremunerated if the companies are associated with or subsidiaries of a company in which the Member holds a remunerated directorship.

2. Remunerated employment, office, profession etc.
This is the section for registering outside employment, professions and sources of remuneration (of more than £600 a year) not clearly covered elsewhere in the registration form. Members are not expected to register the amount of their earnings except where they are 'providing services in the capacity of a Member of Parliament'[7], for example making representations to government departments, providing advice on parliamentary or public affairs or sponsoring functions in parliamentary buildings. In such cases they must register the amount of their earnings within bands of £5,000 and, with the exception of speaking or writing engagements, must also deposit for public inspection an 'agreement for the provision of services'[8].

3. Clients
In this section Members are required to disclose the names of clients (other than companies or organisations already identified in sections 1 and 2, but including clients of those companies or organisations) for whom they provide 'services in the capacity of a Member of Parliament'.

4. Sponsorship or financial or material support
In this section the Member is required to register any donation of more than £1,000 received by the constituency association which is linked either to candidacy at an election or to membership of the House, and also any other form of financial or material support as a Member. A 'linked' donation is defined as one 'expressly tied to the Member by name eg if it is a contribution to the Member's fighting fund or a donation which has been solicited or encouraged by the Member'. The obligation to register does not apply to constituency development agreements and other arrangements in which the identity of the Member is not a factor.

5. Gifts, benefits and hospitality (U.K.)
This section is for the registration of any gift or material advantage received from a United Kingdom source, which in any way relates to membership of the House. Tangible gifts and other benefits over £600 in value must be registered.

A number of benefits are offered to all Members, or to all Members within a particular geographical area. The Guide to the Rules specifies that gifts and benefits known to be available to all Members need not be registered, and the Committee on Standards and Privileges has ruled that this exemption should include benefits made available to certain Members on a geographical basis.

Among such regionally or generally available benefits, those which are currently known to be, or potentially to be, of registrable value are:

web-site design and maintenance by e-politix.com
access to political monitoring service provided by DeHavilland
(deHavilland Engage)
First Great Eastern Trains station car park passes
Thameslink Trains station car park passes
Southwest Trains station car park passes
(restricted to use on parliamentary business)
Airline privilege cards
Such benefits are not required to be registered.

Not all Members take up these benefits when they are offered, and those who do use them to varying extents.

6. Overseas visits
This section covers overseas visits, made by Members or their spouses or partners, which in any way arise out of membership of the House, where the cost of any such visit has not been wholly borne by the Member or by United Kingdom public funds. Several categories of visit, made by Members in the normal course of their parliamentary duties, are exempted from registration. For the most part these are visits paid for from UK public funds or by a Member's own political party[9]. Here again, the threshold for registration is currently £600.

Where a fee is received for an engagement abroad and travel and accommodation are also paid the item is usually entered under Category 2.

7. Overseas benefits and gifts
This section is subject to the same rules as section 5, but covers gifts and benefits from overseas rather than UK sources.

8. Land and Property
The requirement in this section is to register land or property worth, currently, more than £60,000 (other than any home used for the personal residential purposes of the Member or the Member's spouse or partner) or from which in aggregate an income in excess of £6,000 is derived.

9. Registrable shareholdings
In this section Members are required to register the name of any public or private company or other body in which, to their knowledge, they have a beneficial interest in a shareholding (a) of more than 15% of the issued share capital or (b) worth more than £60,000 at the preceding 5th April.

10. Miscellaneous and unremunerated interests
This is a discretionary section for the registration by Members of interests which do not clearly fall within any of the above categories but which they consider to fall within the Register's purpose. In accordance with the nature of the Register as a record of pecuniary and material interests and the wishes of the Standards & Privileges Committee, unremunerated charitable and voluntary commitments are not, of themselves, registered, though if a material benefit arises from them, that should be registered in the appropriate category.


Footnotes:
7 Resolution of the House, 6 November 1995, amended on 14 May 2002.

8 They are similarly required to provide such an agreement if they provide services in a parliamentary capacity in respect of any directorship registered in Category 1.

9 For a full list of these exemptions, see paragraph 36 of the Guide to the Rules relating to the conduct of Members.
