Departmental Databases

Volume 497: debated on Monday 12 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what recent estimate he has made of the error rate in each database run by (a) his Department and (b) its agencies. (291834)

The Ministry of Justice takes its responsibilities for maintaining the integrity of the data stored on its databases very seriously. Although there is no process for summarising the number of inaccurate records, there are systems in place to maximise the accuracy of the data held on the relevant systems. Any inaccurate records that are found on the system are corrected as soon as they are identified.
