What are the new UK government’s tech plans?

The Queen's Speech is due today, but here’s what we can expect to see on the new government’s tech agenda between now and 2020


The Queen's Speech is due to be delivered today, setting out the agenda for the newly-elected Conservative government.

Prime minister David Cameron has promised to implement the Tory manifesto ‘in full’, so we can expect to see pledges on SME spending in Whitehall, broadband and public services tech fulfilled.

The new government is also likely to complete some unfinished business from the last Parliament, for example the ‘Snooper’s Charter’ which was blocked by Liberal Democrat ministers.

Here’s a run-down of the main tech-related pledges the government has promised to fulfil by 2020.
