Have just been looking through Hansard and I spy Quentin Davies is talking absolute complete bollocks in response to a pretty ordinary question. He was asked what ICT projects the Ministry of Defence and its agenc ies were currently carrying out and started his response by saying,
An ICT project can vary from installing single computers and software licences to major programmes, such as the Defence Information Infrastructure.Yes that's right, the MoD apparently consider plugging in a single computer to be a "project" - presumably with a project manager attached to draw up a gantt chart of each step involved for each individual cable.
I bet you can't guess what comes next now that Davies has set up his neat little pile of poo to start with can you? Yes, that's right,
Details of all the ICT projects being undertaken by the Ministry of Defence and each of its agencies is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.If ever there was an example of a Minister deliberately finding a completely crap reason not to answer a question then this is it.
