That the Parliament recognises the recent partnership between Asda and Dell Technologies, through which they intend to donate 7,000 laptops to partner schools across the UK to tackle digital exclusion; notes that 9% of children in the UK do not have access to a laptop or device, and welcomes the news that Asda, Dalgety Bay will be donating 10 laptops and data bundles to Park Road Primary School in Cowdenbeath.
