56 Mrs. Owen asked the Taoiseach if he has satisfied himself that his Department and all agencies under his auspices are using licensed software only; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [15364/98]

My Department and bodies under its aegis have procedures in place to ensure that all software in use is purchased from reputable suppliers and is correctly licensed.

I am satisfied that these procedures are rigorously enforced and that only licensed software is used.
