HC Deb 19 July 1983 vol 46 c85W
Mr. Woodall

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

Mr. Buchanan-Smith

My Department's computers are used to store and compile energy statistics and data and to help produce economic analyses such as the energy projections published earlier this year. They are also used to support work on monitoring and evaluating North sea oil and gas activities. The scope for further computerisation, taking into account the costs and benefits, is under review.
