§ Mrs. Gillan
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if his Department has current dealings with(a) non-governmental organisations and (b) suppliers which are not millennium compliant; and on what date his Department will cease to deal with (i) non-governmental organisations and (ii) suppliers which are not millennium compliant. 
§ Mr. Fatchett
This Department deals with many non-governmental organisations and suppliers. Where we identify that such organisations have a millennium problem, which could have a negative impact on this Department, we take appropriate action. Depending on the scale of the problem, and the nature of the organisation, this may result in this Department ceasing to deal with the organisation at an appropriate time, which we anticipate would be no later than 31 December 1999.
