We asked on what basis we should calculate the staffing expenditure budget and whether we should take into account factors such as the relative deprivation of the constituency. The relevant consultation question received 45 responses, four of which mentioned interns. All of our public consultations and the responses are available on our website <a href="http://www.parliamentarystandards.org.uk/" target="_blank">www.parliamentarystandards.org.uk</a></p><p>Following the consultation, for 2012-13 we increased MPs’ staffing expenditure budgets by 19% for non-London Area MPs and 25 per cent for London Area MPs.</p><p>We have reviewed the level of the staffing expenditure budget as part of subsequent annual reviews and further increased the budget by 1 per cent this year. For 2014-15 the budget is £138,600 for non-London Area MPs and £145,500 for London Area MPs.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The estate is being offered as a whole or in 10 separate lots. Lot 5 is a working farm and part of the farm includes largely unexcavated parts of the Binchester Roman Fort. The excavated part of the Fort, and the other unexcavated area, form part of Lot 6. The lotting takes account of a number of factors including practical boundaries and issues on the ground. For instance, if all of the unexcavated areas had been included in Lot 6, Binchester Hall Farmhouse and yard would be severed from the rest of the farm holding.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Binchester Roman Fort is a scheduled ancient monument. It is a criminal offence to disturb a scheduled ancient monument by carrying out works without Scheduled Monument Consent, or causing reckless or deliberate damage to the monument. To offer best protection, public access to the excavated parts of the Fort is managed and controlled in accordance with a Deed of Guardianship with Durham County Council. This means that, as Guardians, Durham County Council must allow access to the site, but are able to do so in such a way as protects and preserves the site for the future. The property will be sold subject to this Deed of Guardianship.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Church Commissioners own areas of land across England, including four rural estates in the North East. As with other land and property owners, we review these holdings from time to time, based on a variety of commercial and other factors. Following a review, the Commissioners took the decision to offer a number of farms in the Bishop Auckland area on the open market. They continue to own other land and estates in County Durham.</p><p> </p> more like this
