Motion text

That this House supports the widening ease of internet access, but regrets that The International Telecommunications Union recently found that in the 40 top countries in the world, Britain has fallen to 12th place; further regrets that the Government claims that it is leading the way in internet access, even though Britain has fallen behind countries such as Sweden, Denmark and Norway; and believes that unless this trend is reversed there could be serious damage to Britain's long-term economic prospects, that the Government is taking insufficient initiatives to promote internet take-up and that its appalling record in providing e-Government does little to encourage others.
