Volume 489: debated on Tuesday 17 March 2009

To ask the hon. Member for North Devon, representing the House of Commons Commission what steps are being taken to increase the number of sockets providing access to the Parliamentary network for network users in (a) 1 Parliament Street and (b) other parts of the parliamentary estate to allow all computers in hon. Members' offices to access the network at the same time. (263860)

There are no proposals to increase the number of sockets available in Members’ offices across the estate; nor, so far as I am aware, is there any demand for such an increase. Any individual cases would be looked at on their merits, including the costs involved and the capacity of the system in the area.
