Volume 464: debated on Wednesday 10 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how much his Department received from the disposal of information technology equipment in the last year for which figures are available; and what avenues were used for such disposal. (154031)

In the last financial year, the net sales revenue generated by the sale of information technology equipment was £120,000. The MOD disposes of this equipment through its Disposal Services Authority (DSA), using incentivised contracts of sale where returns are divided between MOD and the contractor, to encourage maximum revenue generation. Additionally, DSA runs a contract for the disposal of IT equipment classified as hazardous, for which a fee is paid.
