HC Deb 02 July 1998 vol 315 c255W
Mr. David Atkinson

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what contingency plans his Department is making in the event of the failure of computer systems to recognise the year 2000; when he expects them to be in place, and tested; and if he will make a statement. [48843]

Mr. Ron Davies

My right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster presents quarterly reviews to Parliament of progress on tackling all issues relating to the Millennium date change problem across central Government. His last Report was made on 8 June. At the same time, copies of all Departmental plans are placed in the Libraries of both Houses of Parliament and published on the Internet. At this time, I have nothing to add to the Welsh Office's recently published plans.
