Welsh Assembly spends £14m on office furniture

Sunday 7 September 2008

THE Welsh Assembly Government spent more than £14 million on office furniture in the first nine years of devolution, it was revealed today.
Figures obtained by the Tories show more than £1 million has been spent fitting out offices every year since 1999. Last year\'s bill was £2.1 million.
The Assembly Government said the cost of £14,085,577 reflected a period of \"unprecedented organisational change and renewal\" in which the size and responsibilities of the administration had grown.
Civil servants have been moved to sites outside Cardiff, including to offices in Merthyr Tydfil where about 450 officials have been based since 2006.
Opposition leader Nick Bourne said: \"While I understand offices need to be furnished and equipped properly to allow people to do their jobs, this is an astonishing amount of money.
\"In excess of a million pounds has been spent by the Assembly Government every year since April 1999 — in some years more than £2 million.
\"I am confident every desk and chair owned by the Assembly Government does not need to be replaced annually, so we need to know exactly why this bill is so high.\"
