Departmental Mobile Telephones

Volume 492: debated on Wednesday 20 May 2009

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster pursuant to the answer of 23 February 2009, Official Report, columns 392-93W, on departmental mobile telephones, (1) whether any of the 14 damaged mobile telephones had been allocated to individuals who work in 10 Downing Street; (269953)

(2) what the cost to the public purse was of replacing the 14 damaged mobile telephones;

(3) what the (a) make and (b) model of each of the 14 damaged mobile telephones was.

None of the 14 phones that were damaged had been issued to individuals who work in Downing street.

Under the terms of the contract the Department has with Vodafone, damaged handsets are replaced free of charge on a ‘like for like’ replacement policy.

The make and models of the 14 damaged mobile phones mentioned in my answer of 23 February 2009, Official Report, columns 392-93W, to the right hon. Member are given in the table:
