Practices Of Hewlett Packard

EDM number 1005 in 2004-05, proposed by Gerry Steinberg on 24/03/2005.

That this House is appalled that Hewlett Packard, which is supposedly a quality supplier of office equipment, and is recommended to honourable Members, has the disgraceful policy of replacing brand new faulty equipment with refurbished models which constantly break down and, to add insult to injury, only offer a three-month guarantee on the replaced machines; recommends to honourable Members and their constituents not to purchase Hewlett Packard products, particularly when the company attempts to cover up this shameful policy by hiding behind the smallprint in its guarantees; and calls upon the Government to legislate to stop this underhanded practice.

This motion has been signed by a total of 9 MPs.
