It looks like the UK MP’s will all be given one of Apple’s iPad Air 2 tablets as the House of Commons has decided to spend $1.49 million in iPads and laptops for MP’s.
The House of Commons Commission has announced that all of the 650 MP’s will be given an iPad Air 2 and a laptop after the general elections.
This is being done as part of an apparent cost saving measure and it eill cost the taxpayer around $300,000 a year over the next five years.
“Having been in use across Parliament since 2012, iPads are integrated with current business processes and infrastructure,” said commission chairman John Thurso. “A move away from the Apple operating system (iOS) at this time would incur costs to change these processes.”
At the moment around 209 MP’s in the UK parliament have iPads, since the House of Commons started replacing paper with iPads and laptops back in 2012.
