To ask the hon. Member for Perth and North Perthshire, representing the House of Commons Commission, pursuant to the Answer of 21 January 2020 to Question 2472, what the budget was for information and communications technology equipment for the Parliamentary estate in each year from 2010 to 2019.
The expenditure on equipment by the Parliamentary Digital Service and its predecessor, the Parliamentary ICT Department, has been used rather than the budget to show what has actually been incurred on equipment purchases.
Information is not available prior to 2012/13 at the level requested and may not include all expenditure by the House of Lords. Figures for 2019/20 are to date.
