e-Government Use Remains Too Low

There’s a surprise, Silicon reports that the government is spending £5m to persuade the public to use the electronic services which local authorities have spent billions putting in place.

The 'Lose the Queues' campaign - to start early next year - is designed to support the efforts of local authorities by highlighting the benefits of accessing council services online, such as flexibility and convenience.

The government claims the UK is leading the EU in terms of the sophistication of public authority e-services for the citizen - but that it is currently below average in terms of take-up.

There is evidence that current usage of council e-channels still lags behind public interest in using them, with around half of the adult population of England saying they are interested in using online services.

I’m still here if you want any help or shall I just stick with the Jordanian and Syrian governments?
