Introduction and Terms of Reference

The potential disasters of the "millennium bug" were being extensively reported when this group was set up but so far there had been no effort to co-ordinate at a national level the actions required to avoid electronic meltdown.  A major IT project (which would include the emergency training of "bug busters") was deemed necessary, co-ordinated at both national and European levels. There was further concern that the considerable systems resource required to introduce the Euro, not just in the participating countries, but everywhere that dealt in multiple currencies, would be needed in the same timescale.  EMU was in theory postponable, but Y2K was not.  This group concentrated on achieving action, not writing papers, and made significant proposals to UK and European government, leading to an effective programme.

Minutes and other Archive documents are listed below and most are available in electronic form.  For further information or hard copies of papers not available online, please contact the Group Rapporteur.
