Every single member of parliament is set to get a brand-new iPad Air 2, as part of a huge hardware refresh, which will also see them receive new laptops. The new hardware will be distributed to the MPs after the general election on May 7th.

Although the move is set to cost £200,000 per year (including the cost of SIM cards), John Thurso, who represents the commission, has said that iPads are “linked to a programme to reduce hard copy printing in favour of online publication that is already delivering savings in excess of £3 million per year. These savings are expected to grow further in the new parliament.”

While that’s true to a degree, Android tablets also have games, while MPs will still have their phones. Laptops, too, can also be used to play games. In short, all technology can be used inappropriately, but there needs to be a policy in place to deal with people that go too far.
