Filing Store Operations: Coventry

Volume 504: debated on Thursday 28 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what assessment he has made of the merits of (a) proposals to outsource the filing store operations at Coventry and (b) alternative proposals for the future of those operations. (313417)

Land Registry currently holds its archived year files in 10 file stores across the country, of which Coventry is one. Outsourcing of this activity is one of the proposals currently subject to consultation within Land Registry. All responses to the consultation, including alternative options for achieving efficiencies, will be considered. It is too early to say what the impact would be on any particular file store if the outsourcing goes ahead, but final decisions to outsource will only be taken where it is clear that this will deliver value for money.
