Ipads for MPs

Issue No. 2289

All MPs should have top rate technology at their finger tips—paid for by us. This is according to a house of commons advisory committee.

The committee has ruled that expensive Apple computers like Ipads, which cost at least £400 each, would help MPs save paper and work more efficiently.

Spending hundreds of thousands of pounds on toys for MPs will stick in the throat of ordinary people who are suffering under an increasing mountain of financial pressures.
