Holding answer received on 15 March 2019

Learning from the services that have already been delivered and the feedback received, we have decided to re-order aspects of the programme to allow more time to develop some of the shared systems that sit behind our next set of online services, working to an updated finish date of 2023.

The overall budget will remain unchanged. The cumulative benefits are expected to be greater than the cumulative costs from 2024/25, a year later than previously expected.
