Volume 463: debated on Tuesday 17 July 2007

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will make a statement on the future (a) role, (b) budget and (c) staffing levels of the Government communications network. (149232)

As a virtual organisation, the Government communications network does not directly employ staff but is administered by the Government communication team within Cabinet Office. In the future the GCN's role will be to continue to raise professional standards, share best practice and improve the way communications are co-ordinated across departments. The 2007-08 budget of the team supporting the network is £1.5 million.
