National Audit Office: Data Protection

Volume 468: debated on Wednesday 28 November 2007

To ask the Chairman of the Public Accounts Commission what plans the National Audit Office (NAO) has to review the practices involved in transporting data; whether the NAO (a) uses and (b) plans to continue to use TNT to transport data; and what plans it has to put the transportation of confidential data out to tender. (169387)

This is not a matter for the Commission. The Comptroller and Auditor General has, by statute, complete discretion in the discharge of his functions, and the Commission therefore does not intervene in the day to day running of the National Audit Office. The hon. Member may wish to write to the Comptroller and Auditor General.
