Departmental Equipment

Volume 458: debated on Monday 12 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland pursuant to his answer to the hon. Member for Rayleigh, Official Report, column 1276W, on departmental equipment, whether the computers stolen from his Department held information about the names and addresses of government employees and other Crown servants in Northern Ireland; and if he will make a statement on the security implications of the thefts. (119404)

Names and addresses were not held on any of the departmental computers that were stolen in the past nine years. While all these losses were regrettable, I am satisfied that the security of individuals or the Department has not been compromised.
