Allowances to Members of the Assembly (Repeal) Act (Northern Ireland) 2011

Winding-up Allowance

12.Winding-up allowance is paid to, or in respect of, persons who cease to be Members. The maximum level that can be claimed is set in the 2000 Act and can be changed by order made by the Commission. The SSRB sought to tidy up the expenditure regime by establishing a direct proportion (of one-third) between the rate of office costs expenditure and winding-up allowance. In accordance with the SSRB’s recommendation, the Commission is therefore recommending that winding-up allowance be renamed as winding-up expenditure and that the limit be set, and remain at, one third of the office costs expenditure each time the level of the office costs expenditure is increased.
