§ Dr. John Cunningham
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what is the total investment to date by Her Majesty's Government in both hardware and software development associated with MULTILAB; and what are the Government's financial commitments to the future development of the system.
§ Mr. Anthony Grant
Her Majesty's Government have so far invested just over £56,000 in MULTILAB and a further sum of between £5,000 and £10,000 remains to be spent in order to fulfil the commitment. This is less than half the total investment in MULTILAB; Computer Technology Limited has provided the remaining funds.
