§ Mr. Connarty
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what targets she has set for the roll out of broadband services across the business community; and if she will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Timms
The Government have set a target for the UK to have the most extensive and competitive broadband market in the G7 by 2005.
The Government have also set a target of having one million SMEs trading online by 2002, which was exceeded in 2000, although the target is technology neutral and not specific to broadband.
