The UK's public and private sectors still have plenty of work to do to deal with the millennium bug, according to Trade Secretary Margaret Beckett.
Speaking at a readiness conference in London last week, she said: "Several areas showed 100% blue (ready) assessment, such as water, telecommunications, air traffic control and benefit payments. However, the majority of organisations are still graded amber (some risk) and a huge amount of work remains to be done."
Beckett said "good progress" was being made by central government, while more public sectors were reporting their results to the government body Action2000, "and all of them had some blue to report".
The speech coincided with the launch of a millennium bug Web site on the government's own open.gov.uk server.
The new site plans to track government activity and provide reports on both public and private sector readiness.
