Departments: Databases

Volume 457: debated on Thursday 8 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what databases are controlled by his Department and its agencies; and what percentage of the data in each database he estimates is inaccurate or out of date. (124039)

Defra controls hundreds of applications, many of which can be defined as a database. To provide an answer to this question would require an interrogation of each application, and to do so would incur a disproportionate cost to the Department.
