Mr. Oaten: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department pursuant to his answer of 12 September 2005, Official Report, column 2845W, on improper use of the internet, when he expects all associated contractual activities to be completed for the business case; and what these contractual activities are. 
Hazel Blears: The IMPACT programme (Information Management, Prioritisation, Analysis, Co-ordination and Tasking) is likely to involve tendering for a variety of contracts over the lifetime of the programme which, as reported in the second progress report on the Bichard inquiry recommendations (Home Office, 7 November 2005), may not be completed until 2010, depending on the strategic options chosen.
However, it is intended to publish the existing outline business case, or extracts relating to specific procurements, before then, as commercial sensitivity permits, but it is not presently possible to say exactly when this might be.
