Volume 475: debated on Wednesday 14 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what recent assessment he has made of the performance of the Defence Information Infrastructure programme. (204351)

I remain content that the performance of the Defence Information Infrastructure (DII) programme is continually assessed via its comprehensive governance structure. The fixed element of the DII programme is currently running behind its original implementation schedule; however, the deployable element, which will directly support our front line troops, is progressing on schedule to meet its declared delivery dates. The programme overall remains within 3 per cent. of its approved programme cost and is on track to deliver the benefits supporting its original approval.
