§ Mr. Milburn
To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will list the top 10 suppliers of computer equipment to his Department and Agencies in the last five years, indicating the total value of the contracts received. 
§ Mr. Boswell
[holding answer 14 July 1995]: In August 1991, a contract was awarded to Siemens Nixdorf Information Systems to supply my Department with a wide range of computer equipment. Since then, the company has provided the Department with nearly 95 per cent. of its computer equipment, at a total value exceeding £30 million.
A number of other companies supplied the remaining few per cent., but these cannot be identified and ranked without considerable effort by the officials.
