To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer pursuant to the answer to my right hon. Friend Mr. Maude of 11 December 2008, Hansard, column 261W, on the Government Procurement Card, what bodies other than the card issuing banks hold data on card transactions.

The card issuing banks are the main bodies that store data for transactions made through the Government Procurement Card (GPC) service.

Some customer organisations will hold their own GPC transactional data, this being provided by the card issuing banks. Additionally some customer organisations may hand off GPC transactional data to third party service providers, to help streamline the purchase to pay process.
