The government's contingency planning skills will be put to the test on 26 October, when it will run a day-long exercise to test the lines of communicationbetween key officials, agencies and infrastructure providers.
Codenamed Project Herald, the exercise was announced last month by Leader of the House of Commons, Margaret Beckett, as part of central government's Y2Kcontingency planning effort.
Project Herald was originally scheduled to run over a weekend, but this has since been cut to just a day.
A spokeswoman for Beckett said she would provide information about the resultsof the exercise in broad terms as part of her November Y2K progress report.
