§ Mr. Stratton Mills
asked the Attorney-General if he will give details of the research being carried out on computerisation of the statute book; and if he will indicate the cost of this work in each of the last three years.
§ The Attorney-General
Some preliminary research has been carried out by the Management Services (Computers) Division of the Treasury into the possible uses of computers for legal purposes. In the course of this research the possibility of computerising the Statute Book has been investigated in a provisional way. It is estimated that this preliminary research has cost about £1,500, mostly this year.
