British Parliament to Begin 'Rapid Rollout' of iPads to All 650 MPs

The 650 members of the British parliament will soon be issued with iPads at a cost of £260,000 and £430,000, reports The Register.

That expense only covers the bulk price tag for the kit and doesn't include the cost of running apps and downloading data onto the mobile tablets. MPs will be asked to trade old laptops or computers in exchange for an iPad, the cost of which can be claimed on expenses.

They have to agree to receive documents about parliamentary business on the fondleslabs rather than have that information printed out on paper.


The iPad has been tested in the Commons since early 2011 with the hope that it could save money on print costs. It was approved for 'rapid rollout' to all MPs yesterday by the supervisory body that looks after administration in the House.
