Defence: Thesauri

Volume 477: debated on Friday 20 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will place in the Library copies of the (a) UK Defence Taxonomy and (b) UK Defence Thesaurus. (211887)

The UK Defence Taxonomy is a living document and is therefore subject to alteration to accurately reflect the changing nature of UK Defence business. Moreover, due to the size of the document, and the dependencies within it, the Taxonomy is designed for electronic application and is most conveniently viewed in electronic format.

The UK Defence Taxonomy is complemented by, and interlinked with, the UK Defence Thesaurus, and the two products are jointly known as the UK Defence Terminology. The UK Defence Thesaurus is an expansion of the UK Defence Taxonomy and provides greater detail.

Electronic copies of both these publications will be placed in the Library of the House.
