§ 23. Mr. Tom Harris
To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how the United Kingdom compares with other OECD member countries in the provision of internet access to Government services. 
§ Mr. Woolas
The OECD has not conducted its own e-Government benchmarking study. Other reports indicate that the UK is closely behind Scandinavia and among the other leading countries worldwide in the delivery of e-Government services.
Directgov, the new one-stop internet and DTV service for citizens, is a world leading service which is attracting significant interest from other OECD governments.
