The Commission has adopted as a strategic objective the development and maintenance of an information infrastructure that is unified, consistent, seamless and accessible. There are a number of projects under way which will allow Members to derive greater benefits from Information and Communications Technology in their work.

The House Administration as a whole is considering the Information Committee's recent report, Digital Technology: Working for Parliament and the public, which looks at ways of using Information and Communications Technology to bring the House and the public closer together, something which I know is important to the hon. Gentleman.
