HC Deb 09 May 2002 vol 385 cc314-5W
Mr. Todd

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department if he will place copies of OGC Gateway reviews of the Libra project in the Library. [53459]

Mr. Wills

I am unable to place copies of these OGC reviews in the Library given the commercial sensitivity involved. Compliance with my hon. Friend's request would impair the value added by the Gateway Review process. This relies on the provision of an in-depth, commercially confidential, report for the sole use of the senior responsible officer for the project under review.

The Government remain determined to provide magistrates courts with modern computer equipment and the standardised IT systems that they need and we believe the outcome of discussions currently under way with Fujitsu Services (formerly ICL) will ensure their earliest delivery and provide value for money to the tax payer. These will be concluded shortly, and the House will be informed of the outcome.
