Councils need £2.7bn to pay for online services

Ministers have been told that they will need to provide £2.7bn for councils alone if they are to achieve their aim that all public sector bodies should be providing their services online by 2005.

Consultants Barony estimates £900m a year for three years is needed to get infra-structures in place to provide full services.

The warning comes as the Electronic Communications Bill received Royal Assent last week. The government sees the Bill as a key plank in its aim to make the UK the best place in the world e-commerce.
