§ Mr. Leslie Huckfield
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what computers are in use by her Department; for what they are used; and where they are located.
§ Mrs. Thatcher
The only computer in the Department is an ICL 1904E located in Darlington. Its main uses are (a) maintaining the central record of teachers in England and Wales, required in connection with the administration of the teachers' superannuation scheme, (b) the Department's vote accounting system and (c) processing education statistics.
