British parliament members all set to receive tax payer funded iPads
Every British member of parliament is going to receive an iPad and the British tax payer is set to pick up the bill. The iPad roll-out is part of a major ICT upgrade and follows the completion of a successful iPad trial. The House of Commons administration committee has recommended that the iPad is given to all 650 MPs.
British Prime Minister David Cameron is already an avid iPad user and even has his own app to keep an eye on the country's affairs. He can gain easy access to the latest NHS waiting-list figures, crime statistics, unemployment numbers and a wide variety of other data at a glance. This latest scheme should help increase MP's productivity too as well as saving costs on printing.
