Written answers (Question to Foreign)

My Department is in the process of migrating computer devices from the Windows 7 operating system to Windows 10. For technical reasons this migration may not be fully complete by January 2020. In this context, Windows 7 machines will continue to receive security updates despite changes in the licensing model. The licensing costs associated with a limited number of security upgrades are not yet finalised but are expected to be modest.
