HC Deb 08 March 1999 vol 327 c53W
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. [73073]

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.
