There are no plans to provide Members with netbooks. Past assessments of these products have shown that they cannot run the House security software. The Information Committee plays an advisory role in matters such as this and members of that committee are currently conducting a trial of tablet computers. As part of this trial, the committee will assess whether such devices may assist Members in their parliamentary work, having regard to their compatibility with the parliamentary network, information security guidelines and cost. The committee will evaluate the results of the trial at the end of the year.
