Home office has admitted that over the last three years it has lost 43 laptops and 94 mobile phones. Last week Home Office announced that data on 84,000 prisoners had been lost by a contractor.

The numbers break down to 15 laptops and 47 mobile phones lost in 2007, 14 laptops and 10 mobiles in 2006 and 14 laptops and 37 mobiles in 2005. While Home Office won’t admit to what was on the laptops, it only says that it doesn’t believe sensitive or classified information is at risk.

Dominic Grieve, the shadow home secretary, added: "If the Home Office cannot safeguard such basic equipment, how can they be trusted to deliver ID cards containing the personal data of millions?"
