HC Deb 27 November 1998 vol 321 c26W
Mr. Cotter

To ask the President of the Council what steps she has taken to establish the millennium compliance status of essential suppliers to central Government. [61135]

Mrs. Beckett

It is the responsibility of individual departments to work with their suppliers to obtain compliance information. As part of the quarterly monitoring exercise, central government departments and agencies are asked to report on the steps they have taken and progress made in establishing the millennium compliance of their essential suppliers. The individual returns from the last quarterly review were published on 9 September and are available in the libraries of the House. The returns from the next quarterly review will be published shortly.
