Correspondence

Dr. Strang: To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will list the reasons for the time taken to reply to the letter of 24 June sent to him by the chairman of the consumers in Europe group concerning BSE; and when he expects to be able to send a reply. [9663]

Information Technology (Euro)

Mrs. Anne Campbell: To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what tenders his Department has put out to convert its information technology systems to be euro compliant; what are the cost and person hours required to convert the systems to handle the euro; and when he expects his Department's systems to be fully economic and monetary union compliant. [9463]

Mr. Boswell: The Department and its agencies will assess the impact which a single currency, assumed to be starting on 1 January 1999, would have on their information systems, whether or not the United Kingdom decides to participate in the third stage of economic and monetary union. Where possible, such assessment will be made when preparing information technology systems for the change of millennium.
