The Science and Technology Committee has decided to undertake an inquiry examining the digital skills gap, ahead of the government’s publication of the Digital Transformation Plan next year. This inquiry will go further than the Lord Select Committee on Digital Skills and examine the extent of the digital divide and digital exclusion, the impact on the economy and whether government initiatives are sufficient.
