Ministerial Correction: Response to Lord Clement-Jones on Test and Trace App

Statement made on 25 June 2020

Statement UIN HLWS307


During the Private Notice Question on the NHSX Covid-19 app tabled by Lord Clement-Jones on 22 June 2020, I was asked by Lord Truscott about the cost of the app to taxpayers. I told the House the cost to date has been £11.8 million and I would like to correct the record. The cost of the NHS Covid 19 app will be £10.8 million as of 30 June 2020. This figure is based on the spend for developing and hosting the app together with associated policy, project, evaluation, assurance and related activity.
