The answers are usually boring to non-existant, but on this occassion there is one that leapt out at me. After questioning from John Redwood, the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform revealed that in 2007 it received a Nintendo DS Lite with two games from the Science Museum which it estimated to be worth £200.
Not a big deal you might think, it's only a little gift after all, its technology and it came from the Science Museum. The problem I have is the appendum to the Science Museum the Government put which says,
one part of the public sector accepting a gift from another partSo that's a taxpayer funded body spending taxpayer's money on a games console to give as a gift to another taxpayer funded body.
Yes, yes, yes, I know its only £200, but if lots of little things like this go on it all adds up.
