HL Deb 11 June 2002 vol 636 c34WA
The Earl of Northesk

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What is their estimate of potential reductions in Civil Service manpower that will result over the next live years from putting government services on-line. [HL4427]

Lord Macdonald of Tradeston

At present there is no overall estimate for potential reductions in staff in the Civil Service resulting from e-Government plans. This is a matter for individual departments to consider and include in their business cases when implementing individual projects.
