To ask the Secretary of State for Wales how many (a) laptops, (b) mobile telephones and (c) personal digital assistant devices bought for the use of departmental Ministers have been returned to the Department following each Cabinet reshuffle since 1997; and if he will make a statement. (156729)

In July 2003 Wales Office became part of the then Department of Constitutional Affairs and new equipment was provided to the Wales Office under their contracts from April 2004.

Since that date there has been two Cabinet reshuffles where one mobile phone and one laptop were returned by the outgoing Parliamentary Under Secretary of State and re-allocated to the incoming one.

All equipment held by the Wales Office prior to 2004 was returned to the National Assembly for Wales, as supplied under their contracts.
