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.
