§ 20. Mr. Aitken
asked the Secretary of State for Defence when he intends to introduce the management information system for Ministers into his Department; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Heseltine
I intend to introduce a management information system for Ministers into my Department very soon. The Ministry of Defence is a large and complex executive Department and I have not yet decided on the detailed application of the system. But it will complement and link with the management control, information and accounting systems which already exist in the Department.
