Tory MPs Propose Radical Government IT Overhaul

Just the small matter of having to win the election first...

Conservative MPs are proposing radical changes to government IT that would include the creation of an IT minister, IT contracts being put in the public domain, a new cyber-crime police unit and the creation of a faster national broadband infrastructure capable of delivering interactive video.

The proposals were unveiled today by the Conservative Technology Forum (CTF), a think-tank led by shadow industry and technology minister Michael Fabricant MP and European MP Malcolm Harbour. The plan does not represent official Tory policy but is aimed at outlining a technology strategy for the party in the event it wins the forthcoming general election.
