The Cabinet Office and the Central Office for Information are reducing the number of websites, beginning with the closure of 951 by To prevent a recurrence of the proliferation of government websites, no new ones should be established without the agreement of the Government’s Chief Information Officer in the Cabinet Office.

We say, "it is just not possible to predict on a computer at risk families. you cannot predict, for example, which mothers are likely to suffer from postnatal depression, which father will become violent or an alcoholic, or which parents have no family support and find it hard to cope with young children or which children will have developmental problems. To support parents in bringing up their children to be good, happy and healthy citizens, there must be a support service available to all mothers, not just those that seem to tick the right boxes. That is the role of the health visitors. please ensure the primary care trusts stop reducing the health visiting support service."

We argue that this understanding is a mistake. It would be preferable for government to understand providing reusable data, rather than providing websites, as the core of its online publishing responsibility.’ David Robinson, Harlan Yu, William P Zeller, Edward W Felten. ‘Making government data available online in universally accessible formats to allow citizens to make use of that data to comment, derive value, and take action in their own communities…’ ‘Employing technologies, including blogs, wikis and social networking tools, to modernize internal, cross-agency, and public communication and information sharing to improve government decision-making.’ (pre-convention)
