Rishi Sunak – 2018 Comments on Digital Innovation in Local Government

The comments made by Rishi Sunak, the then Local Government Minister, on 4 July 2018.

Whether it’s an app to report fly-tipping, or slick online services to pay your Council Tax, many local authorities are at the forefront of digital innovation.

But there’s much more to do. Digital doesn’t belong in the basement, it belongs in the boardroom.

I want councils and partners across the country to sign up to this declaration. By supporting each other and building on each other’s work we can revolutionise services for our residents.
