Edwin Poots: ...the level of coordination between the various statutory agencies that are often involved with the families on a single-issue basis.  The new service is being delivered by Extern, following an open procurement process.  That is something that I cannot involve myself in.  Procurement has to be fully above board, and that is how it was done.  I recognise the importance of the 99 families...

Simon Hamilton: ....  It takes some time to roll it out. Mr McKay also talked about companies coming to Departments selling technology.  We have got to be careful, in the first instance, particularly around procurement law, that somebody does not just walk into the Department headquarters and say, "I've got something that will revolutionise how you work".  They may well have something that will...
