§ 36. Mr. David Atkinson
To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will make a statement on progress with the millennium compliance of computer systems involved in the provision of benefits. 
§ Angela Eagle
All the computer systems used to assess and pay benefits were made compliant during 1998 (the majority before the end of August 1998). In addition, by the end of last year, we had successfully tested all these systems using dates before and after the Year 2000.
