Description of what we publish

We publish information about our commissioners’ fees, travel and subsistence costs as part of our commitment to being open about what we do.

Fees are the daily rates we pay our commissioners. The House of Commons has set the current daily rate at £390 per day, and £195 per half day, which is equivalent to Band 4 of judicial salaries.

We also pay for travel, accommodation, meals and certain other expenses that our commissioners incur while carrying out our work. The limits for these expenses are set out in our policy.

We publish an annual total at the end our financial year. Our financial year starts 1 April, and ends 31 March the following year.
