§ Mr. Charles Morrison
asked the Minister of Technology what steps he has taken to encourage all Government Departments and all organisations which receive Government aid wishing to purchase a computer to request tenders from British manufacturers.
§ Mr. Cousins
In computer procurement for Government Departments tenders are invariably invited from British manufacturers. Over the public sector as a whole the Ministry of Technology, through its Computer Advisory Service will ensure that appropriate consideration is given to the products of the British computer industry.
