The Empire talk technology

The European Information Society Group (Eurim)
will formally launch the exercise on 18 July 2007, with a call for
evidence and plans to hold three hearings in October and November,
after the publication of the next round of Comprehensive Spending

Margaret Moran MP, the chair of the organisation, told GC News the inquiry is aimed at raising awareness of Transformational Government among MPs and influencing future policy.

“We hope it can link the policy strands and
free up resources to deal with complex issues,” she said. “We want to
clear out the easy online services and focus on the people who really
need them.”

Eurim's secretary general Philip Virgo said
the process will cover three strands with individual hearings on each:
social inclusion, ensuring that online services reach people who reach
people without internet access; shared services, extending to
partnerships with groups such as non-governmental organisations and
community enterprises; and democratisation of delivery, taking in the
techniques developed in online social networking.

“We think we've gone for the three areas
that are most difficult,” he said. “They've been picked in consultation
with ministers and officials.”

Among the figures due to give evidence are
Sir David Varney, government chief information officer John Suffolk,
and chief executive of the Royal Society for Encouragement of Arts,
Manufactures and Commerce Matthew Taylor.

Virgo said that Eurim may ultimately
publish a report from the inquiry, but that it is more concerned that
it influences the thinking of MPs and feeds into the policy making

The Empires tentacles will reach us all unless we stop it.

on the European Constitution Treaty.
