To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office

(1) what the cost to the public purse was of the Scope IT project; how much was paid to IBM in respect of the project; and how much is planned to be spent on the replacement for the project;

(2) whether her Department plans to undertake legal action to recover losses from the Scope IT project.

There is nothing further to add my written ministerial statement on 16 July 2009, Hansard, column 41WS.

It is not practice to publish the costs of intelligence-related programmes. They are subject to scrutiny by the Intelligence and Security Committee, whose reports are available in the Library for the reference of Members.
