HC Deb 20 March 2002 vol 382 c321W
Mr. Menzies Campbell

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales, pursuant to the answer of 22 January 2002, Official Report, column 706–07W, on stolen equipment, whether the laptop stolen from his Department was (a) new and unused and (b) used; and what was the nature of the data stored on it. [42652]

Mr. Paul Murphy

I understand that this theft, which dates from the period of the former Welsh Office, was of ancillary cabling equipment for a laptop rather than the laptop itself. There was thus no loss of data.
