Departmental Lost Property

Volume 507: debated on Wednesday 17 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what property has been recorded as (a) lost and (b) stolen from his Department in the last 12 months; and what estimate has been made of the cost of the replacement of that property. (322076)

I refer the hon. Member to the reply given to him on 16 March 2009, Official Report, column 844W, by my hon. Friend the Member for Lincoln (Gillian Merron); namely, the information required is held separately in various Foreign and Commonwealth Office departments, all of which hold records relating to various losses and thefts of both personal property and official furnishings, including IT equipment losses.

As this information is not held centrally, providing an accurate answer would incur disproportionate cost.
