Ministerial Corrections

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs

Departmental ICT

Mr. Hoban: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what IT projects (a) his Department and (b) each of its agencies is undertaking; and what the most recent estimate of (i) the cost and (ii) the completion date of each is. [229162]

[Official Report, 12 November 2008, Vol. 482, c. 1226-1227W.]

Letter of correction from Huw Irranca-Davies:

An error has been identified in the table of the written answer given to the hon. Member for Fareham (Mr. Hoban) on 12 November 2008. The figure for RenewIT of £3,810,000 was incorrect and should have been £9,000,000.

The correct answer is as follows:

Huw Irranca-Davies: The following table details current major IT projects in DEFRA and its largest executive agencies, the Rural Payments Agency and Animal Health. The projects detailed are those which cost more than £1 million over the life of the project. Costs listed exclude day-to-day running costs after the completion of the project. Projects costing less than £1 million and those within smaller executive agencies have been excluded as data collection for these would incur a disproportionate cost to the Department to compile.
