Tackling Digital Exclusion

EDM number 1801 in 2017-19, proposed by Daniel Zeichner on 01/11/2018.

That this House welcomes the campaign by the Good Things Foundation, a charity that tackles social exclusion through digital, to bridge the digital divide in the UK; notes how recent research published by the Good Things Foundation has shown that at the current rate of investment in digital support, in 10 years' time almost seven million adults in the UK will be left behind as a result of digital exclusion; acknowledges that this is unacceptable; recognises that by bridging the digital divide and upskilling the entire population in digital skills, the UK can benefit by £21.9 billion within a decade, through savings and contributions to the economy; supports Good Things Foundation's call for the Government and companies throughout the UK to pledge their commitment to achieving a 100 per cent digital included nation by 2028; and encourages investment in our population's digital future.

This motion has been signed by a total of 15 MPs.
