HC Deb 19 July 1983 vol 46 c111W
Mr. Woodall

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will provide information on the current uses of computers within his Department and plans for their further introduction and extension.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

My Department, including the Property Services Agency, makes extensive use of computers for a wide variety of functions including statistics, rate support grant, management information, payroll, costing and stock control. There are a number of plans to develop these applications further and to introduce others, as in the monitoring of trade in endangered species and in the administering of grants for ancient monuments and historic buildings.
