Volume 496: debated on Monday 5 October 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills how much was spent from the public purse on steps to (a) encourage UK businesses to prepare for the millennium date change and (b) prevent problems attributable to the millennium bug in the public sector. (290686)

I have been asked to reply.

I refer the right hon. Member to the answer given by the then Minister for the Cabinet Office (Mr. Alexander) on 7 January 2003, Official Report, column 71W. The detailed information requested is not held centrally and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
