Departmental Electronic Equipment

Volume 496: debated on Tuesday 1 September 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health with reference to the answer of 26 November 2008, Official Report, column 2060W, on departmental electronic equipment, how much (a) his Department and (b) its agencies have spent on (i) flat screen televisions, (ii) DVD players and (iii) stereo equipment since November 2008. (289165)

Comprehensive information on spend for flat screen televisions, DVD players and stereo equipment, since November 2008, is not held centrally and to collect it would incur disproportionate cost.

All expenditure has to be incurred in accordance with the principles of Managing Public Money and the Treasury handbook on Regularity and Propriety.
