Commenting on news that 50 laptops were stolen from Glasgow City Council, Glasgow SNP Group Leader Graeme Hendry said: “This is a major blunder from Labour at Glasgow City Council and raises serious questions about security at council property.
“The theft of 50 laptops, in addition to the two previously reported, is deeply concerning.
“But what is even more distressing is that this isn’t the first time something like this has happened – and comes on the back of another Labour council laptop theft in North Lanarkshire only last week.
“The council doesn’t have a shred of credibility when it comes to data security – how can it when it continues to lose data?
“We’ve had stolen laptops, misplaced election ballot boxes and information relating to social work and psychological reports have been lost.
“Labour must explain how they have failed time and time again to ensure security of data and how they will resolve this as it is clear their own ALEO is not up to the job."
