§ 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. 
§ 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.
