There’s a real lack of ambition and clarity in the government’s digital transformation strategy – Trickett

Jon Trickett MP, Labour’s
Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office,
responding to warnings from
the Institute for Government about deficiencies in the Government
Transformation Strategy, said:

“Ministers need to pay attention to these warnings. There’s a real
lack of ambition and clarity in the government’s digital transformation
strategy.

“While the Government tried to avoid criticism by sneaking it out
after the Brexit debate, they cannot ignore the details which they’ll be judged
on in the long term.

“Theresa May and her Government should throw their weight behind
this strategy to make sure a digital transformation actually takes place – and
this isn’t just another flashy strategy that falls by the wayside when
Ministers realise they haven’t thought through the details.”
