HC Deb 25 June 1997 vol 296 c542W
Mr. Sheerman

To ask the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what use he plans to make of the Internet to make Government more open. [5105]

Mr. Morley

MAFF takes a positive view of the Internet as a medium for making its work more open and accessible. The introduction of a dedicated MAFF World Wide Web service (http://www.maff.gov.uk) in October 1996 has seen an expansion in the range of information available to Internet users. The Department is considering how to further develop electronic services to the public.
