Taxpayer Spends £4 Million on Government Lawyers’ Home Working Equipment

Whitehall lawyers have spent approximately £4 million of taxpayer money on purchasing new laptops, tablet computers and mobile phones to help them work from home. The Telegraph has more.

The Government Legal Department (GLD) has purchased thousands of remote working devices for its staff since 2021, including 560 mobile phones, 2,135 new laptops and 10 tablet computers, according to data obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.
