asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how much the Ordnance Survey has spent on computer hardware and associated peripherals such as plotters and digitisers over the last 20 years.

The historic cost of all computer equipment at present held by the Ordnance Survey—including plotters, digitisers and so on and accommodation conversion—is approximately £2·7 million.
