§ Mr. Burstow
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to his answers of 14 February 2000,Official Report, column 372W, and 2 February 2000, column 590W, on computers, what were the grade and post of each of his Department's staff involved in internal hacking incidents over the past five years; and what was the date and location of each incident. 
§ Mr. Spellar
[holding answer 22 February 2000]: The Government-wide Unified Incident Reporting and Alert Scheme (UNIRAS) accepts reports on the understanding that the anonymity of the organisation submitting the report is maintained. The records held within the UNIRAS system do not include the grades and posts of those involved in each incident, or the disciplinary action taken. The details requested cannot be provided without incurring disproportionate cost, or in the case of location of incidents, risking prejudicing the anonymity of the UNIRAS system.
