Brexit has left a regulatory black hole for digital, say MPs • The Register: "The publication of the Government's Digital Strategy has been delayed by over six months. The Committee urges the government to set out in its Digital Strategy the implications of Brexit, with reference to specific, current negotiations relating to the digital economy.
"We look forward to the publication of the Government's Digital Strategy, in the summer of 2016 (six months later than expected)," it said.
However, sources have told The Register that the strategy has been put on ice following Brexit.
The strategy is also supposed to contain an outline of how the Government Digital Service will spend its £450m windfall from last November.
Iain Wright MP, chair of the BIS committee, urged the government to set out its plans. "This includes urgently addressing the concerns of tech companies who rely on the single market and high-skilled migrants from the EU.
"The Government needs to clarify regulation to ensure fair competition while enabling digital businesses to thrive and grow to the benefit of consumers and the UK economy."" 'via Blog this'
