The only way is Office: UK Parliament to migrate to Microsoft cloud

The Register - The UK Parliament is migrating to Office 365, which will become the default option for email, file-sharing, hosted apps and storage services for MPs and parliamentary staff from May 2015.

Like many organisations, Parliament has decided that moving to the cloud offers the potential for financial savings. A January meeting of House of Lords Management Board (see section 7.2 of the minutes) acknowledged data sovereignty and security issues need to be tackled for the plan to be pulled off successfully.
