HC Deb 09 December 1969 vol 793 cc78-9W
Mr. Leslie Huckfield

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why the basic computer equipment now being installed at Pay As You Earn and other centres by his Department will not permit random access to data, either at those centres or from remote terminals; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Taverne

Random access facilities are unnecessary. The P.A.Y.E. centres will give an efficient service without the heavy additional cost of random access and remote terminals.
