§ Mr. Henderson
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaser if he will publish the invitation to tender and the specification of requirements for the House of 447W Commons Library computer indexing system.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
In accordance with the Central Computer and Telecomunications Agency procedure, the invitation to tender is simply a formal letter to short-listed suppliers containing no details of the system required. The full description of the House of Commons Library indexing system is contained in the operational requirement and I have arranged for a copy of this to be deposited in the Library for the information of Members.
