HC Deb 21 January 1997 vol 288 c565W
Mr. Jim Cunningham

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security what are the estimated(a) start-up costs and (b) annual costs for the new accord information technology system. [10513]

Mr. Burt

The information is not yet available as work to define the new systems has not yet reached the stage where service providers can submit technical solutions, and thus predict costs.
