HC Deb 25 June 1997 vol 296 c550W
Mr. Sheerman

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what use he plans to make of the Internet to make Government more open. [5107]

Mr. Spellar

My Department is committed to providing information on its activities in accordance with the Code of Practice on Access to Government Information. We recognise the potential of the Internet to assist in this process. The MOD Home Page is atwww.mod.uk, which provides links to other Defence-related pages, including the three Armed Services, who have Home Pages at:

  • www.army.mod.uk,
  • www.royal-navy.mod.uk and
  • www.open.gov.uk/raf.rathome.htm.

Information on the MOD web-site includes Departmental policy on Open Government and the Departmental complaints procedure, as well as policy developments, Ministerial statements and speeches, procurement and technological matters, and information on MOD organisation. We are currently reviewing the MOD web-site with a view to improving both the presentation and coverage of the information carried on it.
