Mark Menzies – 2014 Parliamentary Question to the Cabinet Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Mark Menzies on 2014-06-25.

To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, what digital-by-default Government services will be available by next year; and what support he plans to make available to older people and those who are not yet online.

Mr Nick Hurd

By March 2015, 25 major government services will be redesigned and rebuilt as digital-by-default making them simpler, clearer and faster to use. Full details are listed on gov.uk/transformation

This Government’s approach is digital-by-default but not compulsion. We want to help get more people online, through our Digital Inclusion programme, but for those who cannot or will not we will always provide assistance, whenever they need it.
