§ Mr. Cohen
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will describe the new uses of the personal data that will result from a new police national computer; what additional indexes will be linked together; what is the anticipated access rates and performance of each index; and when he estimates that the new police national computer will be fully operational.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
Plans for a replacement police national computer have not yet been finalised. We hope to make an announcement later this year.
