The BBC reports today that the Commons Administration Committee in the UK is planning to look into whether or not all Members of Parliament (MPs) in the British Parliament should be issued with their own iPad (or other tablet). Apparently the committee has recommended that providing an iPad for each MP will save the taxpayer money in the long run, as well as making it easier for MPs to get their work done, and also saving on paper costs. The BBC says that at present, each MP is given three desktop computers and two laptops to use in their office. According to the report, 70 MPs have already taken the initiative to get their own iPads on expenses. If the committee does decide to go ahead with the rollout of tablets to all MPs, it’s most likely that the chosen tablet will be the iPad, as the BBC quotes the administration committee as saying that while “other devices were in the market… the iPad was ahead of the field with regard to functionality.â€

Do they deserve them?

Yeah if they pay for them! I paid for mine after paying disgusting amounts of tax per week for these louts to abuse the money, why not ask them to actually pay for once, they might look after it.
