§ Mr. Menzies Campbell
To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what equipment has been stolen from her Department since 1 May 1997; and what the approximate value of each item was. 
§ Dr. Howells
Equipment stolen from the Department since May 1997 has been confined to information technology equipment, namely one laptop computer (value £2,000), three personal computer base units (value £1,500) and one personal computer monitor (value £300). All losses are reported by the Department as both a security breach, immediately after the event is detected, and annually to the Treasury as a loss by fraud.
