HC Deb 15 June 1999 vol 333 cc74-5W
Mr. Webb

To ask the Chairman of Broadcasting Committee if his Committee will investigate the feasibility of allowing hon. Members to obtain audio or video clips from debates in a digital format. [86399]

Mr. Eric Clarke

The Parliamentary Recording Unit supplies sound and video tapes to hon. Members. Audio tapes can be supplied in DAT, or digital format if requested. However, video tapes are not yet available in digital format since all recordings are still analogue. The first digital signals will originate from the Committee Rooms in Portcullis House and, from autumn 2000, digital and analogue video tapes will be available on request.
