Volume 502: debated on Wednesday 16 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government if he will limit the free release of Ordnance Survey data to that in respect of which the Government is a monopoly supplier. (307755)

The Prime Minister proposed on 17 November to release for free and for reuse, including commercially, some Ordnance Survey data relating to administrative and electoral boundaries, mid-scale mapping and postcode areas. The purpose of the forthcoming consultation is to set out the proposal in greater detail and to hear feedback, including on the impact on the wider market in which Ordnance Survey operates.
