The estimated cost of fixing the millennium date change problem in UK central government has risen by six per cent to #393 million since November.
Public services minister David Clark has opened the books to public scrutiny and departmental reports reveal that only #25 million has been spent so far, with estimate revision ongoing within some departments. A big bite will be taken out of the budget by the Ministry of Defence which alone expects to spend #200 million.
The report reveals that 81 per cent of departments expect to complete the work by March 1999.
