To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what he estimates total central government spending on public sector IT will be over the next five years; and if he will make a statement. [108766]

It is not possible to estimate central government spending on IT over the next five years. Departmental allocations have only been set up to 2005–06.However, we estimate that around £6 billion from within departmental expenditure limits will be spent on improving public services through Information and Communications Technology over the three years to 2005–06.
