§ Mr. Michael
I have asked my officials to introduce systems to provide e-mail access from outside the Department as quickly as possible. Work is already in hand to provide this facility on a general basis. My Department is already able to provide e-mail facilities to specific officials where a specific need can be 487W demonstrated. In addition the Department publishes e-mail addresses for replies to consultation exercises. On the Internet Web site for the National Assembly for Wales, members of the public are encouraged to enter into a debate about Assembly issues by posting views and questions to the Web site by e-mail.
