Departmental Mobile Phones

Volume 491: debated on Monday 20 April 2009

To ask the Leader of the House (1) how much has been spent on (a) the purchase of and (b) bills for (i) Blackberrys and (ii) other mobile telephones for (A) Ministers, (B) special advisers and (C) civil servants in her Office in each year since 2005; (268244)

(2) how many (a) Blackberrys and (b) other mobile telephones have been provided to (i) Ministers, (ii) special advisers and (iii) civil servants in her Office in each year since 2005.

The Office of the Leader of the House of Commons joined the Cabinet Office in 2007. I refer the hon. Gentleman to the answer given by the Cabinet Office.

It would not be possible to provide information prior to 2007 without incurring a disproportionate cost.
