Written answers (Question to Minister for Justice and Law Reform)

All Ministers are provided with the standard Departmental suite of ICT equipment. In addition some Ministers have been provided with PCs and associated IT equipment for their constituency offices. This is long established practice and is covered by Oireachtas guidelines.

My Department's records indicate that the cost of providing all computer hardware and software in the offices were Nil in 2007 and approximately €2,200 in 2008, €1,800 in 2009 and €1,000 in 2010.
