Tech Eye.net: Conservative MP rallies for iPads on expenses



The TaxPayers’ Alliance fiercely disagreed with Hart. Spokesperson Emma Boon told TechEye “An iPad is an optional extra and MPs can pay for it themselves”.

“There is absolutely no justification for an MP asking taxpayers to pay for this gadget,” Boon continued, “especially at a time when money is tight and very necessary spending cuts are being made.”

“An iPad is a premium product and that comes with a premium price-tag; it’s the latest toy. There is no function that it performs that an MP needs that cannot be fulfilled by a reasonably priced laptop or a phone with e-mail or similar.”

Boon and the TaxPayers’ Alliance believe MPs need to think of what is best value for the taxpayers. “But,” she said, “it seems that some are still thinking about what they can squeeze out of the system.”
