Baroness Hanham

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When they now expect to sign the contract for the information technology systems behind FiReControl; and what has delayed the signing which was expected to have taken place this month. [HL770]

The Minister of State, Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (Lord Rooker)

The signing of the FiReControl infrastructure services contract has never been planned for January 2005. It is expected that the contract will be let in autumn 2005.
