"Our call to the service desk was referred upwards. We've left a
message with ICT management. Inquiries to the All Parliamentary
Internet Group and parliamentary IT lobby group Eurim are also yet
to shed any light on the matter.
"However one House of Commons source, who requested anonymity,
confirmed to El Reg that the memo is genuine. He added that the
House of Commons network had been "slow for most of the week" and
acting like it was "hand cranked", although its performance had
improved a bit by Friday once the clean-up operation got under way.
The prohibition of plugging mobile devices into the network was
likely to inconvience MPs and other who synchronised their phones
with their desktops, he added."
