asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether he plans to site an information technology centre in mid-Hertfordshire; and if he will make a statement.

When I announced the location of the first 30 information technology centres to the House on 21 December, I also announced our intention to extend the scheme to about 100 centres during the course of this year. The Manpower Services Commission, which is organising this initiative jointly with the Department of Industry, is currently identifying likely locations for the extended programme.It is not possible at this stage to say whether Mid-Hertfordshire will have a centre, although I hope to be in a position to announce further locations within the net few months.
