According to the Daily Mail, a committee of senior MPs will meet today to discuss, and most likely approve, the purchase of iPads to every single member of the House at the cost of £250,000. Oh, and add to that data subscription fees.
It appears that some MPs were given iPads last year to see whether these devices could improve efficiency and save on paper. This apparently went well.
Of course, if approved, the decision will not go down well with the public, but when you take into consideration that every single member gets, at the moment, three desktop computers and two laptops, I think the iPads can actually save a lot of cash.
