To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many IT projects have been developed for his Department since 2001; and whether he has agreed to make public Gateway reviews for these projects (a) in full and (b) in part. (23519)

Information on the number of projects is not held centrally and is therefore not available. To provide a complete answer in the time available would therefore incur disproportionate costs.

A Gateway review is conducted on a confidential basis for the Senior Responsible Officer. Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 each request for the release of information contained in a Gateway Review is considered on a case-by-case basis.
