§ Mrs. Anne Campbell
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he expects to be able to receive and respond to communications via electronic mail.
§ Mr. Nelson
The Treasury already sends out information electronically. Its Internet service was launched on 15 November 1994.
Material is provided on the Teasury's own Internet server on the world wide web. In addition to the world wide web, the same information can be obtained by electronic mail or by file transfer.
Users can also obtain help about the service using electronic mail. My Department has replied to all queries it has received to date.
As the service expands the Treasury hopes to be able to respond to more communications.
