The Ministry of Justice's IT systems do not provide a record of this information, as IP addresses for Wikipedia users within the Department and its agencies cannot be linked to individuals. It should be noted that any input to such websites would be done in accordance with the civil service code, which states that civil servants should: "use resources only for the authorised public purposes for which they are provided" and "make sure public money and other resources are used properly and efficiently".
