NAO Data report – Jo Platt responds

Jo Platt MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, responding to the NAO’s report showing that data is not seen as a priority by government, said:

“The Conservatives are a party unfit for the digital age.

“A cocktail of poor leadership, ignorance and austerity has left the Government unable to capitalise on the power of data. This has undermined policies and worsened already desperate situations such as Windrush.

“Labour in government will tackle head on the challenges of delivering modern, digital government, and we will harness the power of data so it works for the many.”
