Reports on parliamentarian certification status
As part of the public reporting process, current and former parliamentarians (including former Prime Ministers, surviving spouses / de facto partners of former Prime Ministers, and post retirement travellers) are asked to certify that the expenses listed in their report were used for the dominant purpose of conducting their parliamentary business. Current and former parliamentarians are not asked to certify the specific amount of listed expenses as they may have limited knowledge or control over various types of expenses, such as office facilities.
The data from 1 January 2019 onwards is also published on data.gov.au for download.
Expenditure information for 1 January 2017 to 30 June 2021 is available on Trove.
