§ Mr. David Atkinson
To ask the President of the Board of Trade if there is an agreed international standard for year 2000 compliance for computer systems; and if she will make a statement. 
§ Mrs. Beckett
An agreed international standard for Year 2000 compliance of computer systems has not yet been published. The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) has set up an informal working group, on which the British Standards Institution (BSI) is represented, to consider such a document.
