Make or Break: Lords Digital Skills Committee Report published. sticky icon

Make or Break: The UK's Digital Future was published on 17th February 2015. In this report the House of Lords Select Committee on Digital Skills expresses considerable anxiety about the digital future of the UK:

"There is ... a real concern that the UK will be left behind in this new digital era; we are at a tipping point. Digital businesses can locate anywhere in the world, and if we fail to provide the right conditions for them to flourish in the UK, we will become a branch economy, much less prosperous and influential than we could be."
