HC Deb 17 July 2002 vol 389 c378W
Mrs. Calton

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what steps are being taken to ensure that teachers who take home school/LEA IT equipment for their work do not have to insure such equipment with their own private home and contents policies. [68204]

Mr. Miliband

The Government have no plans to legislate on the insurance of IT equipment owned by schools or LEAs. In cases where there is an understanding that a teacher uses such equipment at home for professional purposes, we would not expect him or her to have to cover loss or accidental damage to the equipment while at home or travelling to and from work.
