Are tonor cartridges a sign of bigger Government waste?

Some time ago I bought a colour laser printer as it was half price. All well and good until I saw how much each of the 4 cartridges cost to fill the machine – more than the hardware itself.
Then I learn that new MPs have been given a Goliath of a printer that takes the same cartridges. Now more interesting than that is what Banner – the House of Commons stationery supplier is charging for the black toner cartridge. Apparently £121, yet on a well known website you can get an original un-reconditioned one for £52.
Hmmm… I hope the new MPs use of bit of initiative and don’t use the preferred supplier option. Me thinks, however, toner cartridges and their price are just the tip of the iceberg with regards money that could be save.
