Comment: 

Only 3 of the British government's departments will complete their audits, due in January, 1998. Not making the deadline are Social Security, Defense, and National Health -- the heart of the British government.

Making the inventory of affected systems accounts for 1% of a Year 2000 repair task, according to the California White Paper. Inventory is another word for audit. Awareness is 1%. So, the British government still has over 98% of the task ahead of it.

It is should be clear where Britain is headed. But as far as the public is concerned in late 1997, it is not clear at all.
