The Secretary of State for Education, my right hon. Friend Michael Gove, receives e-mails from a wide range of senders in the normal course of business, both from inside the Department and outside. The Secretary of State has been provided with one departmental desktop computer and one departmental laptop, both of which are obviously capable of receiving e-mails from non-departmental e-mail accounts.
