Maps: Licensing

Volume 481: debated on Tuesday 21 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government whether plans are in place to simplify the re-use of licences for Ordnance Survey mapping data. (228401)

In common with other Trading Funds, Ordnance Survey is currently subject to an Assessment by The Shareholder Executive on behalf of Government. Once the Trading Funds Assessment is concluded and has reported to Government, Ministers will consider, if necessary consult, and then make decisions based upon the recommendations made by the assessment. Ordnance Survey will then develop and implement any necessary changes to its licences in line with these decisions.
