The Conservatives are incapable of delivering the modernisation government needs – Jo Platt

Jo Platt MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, responding to Cabinet Office Minister Oliver Dowden’s defence of the Government’s digital record, said:

“With Verify on the verge of collapse and the system for national security vetting now in need of replacement, it is staggering that the Government sees fit to defend its record on digital technology.

“The Conservatives have shown themselves to be absolutely incapable of delivering the modernisation government needs, and as a result, they have compromised national security and cost the taxpayer millions. 

“The Government should commit to conducting a comprehensive review of its digital systems and the risks posed by their failure.”
