To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many (a) male and (b) female members of staff in her Department were issued with personal digital assistants in each year since 2001; and if she will make a statement. (181358)

The requested information is given in the following table.

Data for Blackberry and Personal Digital Assistants issued to staff for years 2005 until 2008 is shown in the table as follows.
