Labour press release
Chi Onwurah MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Innovation, Science and Digital Infrastructure, commenting on the House of Lords’ Communications Committee report ‘Broadband for all - an alternative vision’, published today, said: “Since this Government has been in power we have seen no progress in broadband services for large parts of the country.
Ministers need to do more to support the UK’s digital future, and today’s report highlights the ongoing concerns which Labour has raised that customers and businesses will be left behind.
“To boost jobs and growth, help get us out of the recession made in Downing Street and create an economy which works for working people, we need a compelling vision for our broadband future. Instead, we have no Communications green paper, no 4G services, and no universal broadband. The Tory-led Government is failing to tackle the growing superfast digital divide.”
