Does anyone know if MPs travel expenses are subject to the FOIA?

Would it be a reasonable question to ask those MPs who live near airports, and who back nimby groups, how often they fly, where they go to, and for what purposes?

Presumably, if they are going on government business, they would have to reveal this under the act?

I understand that they no longer get free parking with BAA, but how many use no frills airlines, and how many pay far more than they need to for their journeys?

Ditto for rail tickets - do they still go first class, and even if they go standard, how many get the best value tickets, and how many get Standard Open Returns?
