The Parliamentary Communications Directorate (PCD) is currently evaluating new virtual private network (VPN) software, which may help to simplify and speed up the process of VPN log-on. PCD plans to begin a pilot of the new software with a limited number of active users before the summer recess, with a view to making decisions about implementation in the early autumn. I hope that a number of Members and their staff will participate in the pilot.
