To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs pursuant to the answer of 4 February 2009, Official Report, columns 1281-2W, on geographical information systems, whether the cadastral parcels used in implementation of the INSPIRE Directive will include property data held by (a) the Land Registry, (b) Ordnance Survey and (c) the Valuation Office Agency.

Cadastral parcel datasets(1) held by or on behalf of public authorities will be in scope for implementation of the INSPIRE Directive. However, the implementing rules that will confirm the criteria to assess which datasets meet the definition of cadastral parcels will not be finalised before autumn 2009. Until the criteria have been agreed and assessed it is not possible to state explicitly whether datasets from specific organisations will be in scope.

(1)( )Areas defined by cadastral registers or equivalent.
