Children: Databases

Volume 493: debated on Monday 8 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families whether users of the ContactPoint database will be able to gain access to the database via wireless connections. (276853)

[holding answer 1 June 2009]: Organisations, who implement a wireless network in accordance with the relevant HMG security policy, may allow users to access ContactPoint via that method. Technical security measures prevent access to ContactPoint from anything other than an approved network and it is not possible to gain access to ContactPoint from unsecured wireless broadband or public locations such as internet cafes and wireless “hotspots”.
