To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what recent discussions he has had on digital inclusion in Wales with the First Minister; and if he will make a statement. (255539)

The deputy Minister for digital inclusion, the Under-Secretary of State for Wales, my hon. Friend the Member for Caerphilly (Wayne David) and I have discussed the issue on a number of occasions with the Welsh Assembly Government Minister with responsibility for digital inclusion, to ensure that the actions set out in the UK Government’s Digital Inclusion Action Plan are informed by, and reinforce WAG initiatives.

I know that the Welsh Affairs Committee is currently conducting an inquiry into the issue, and I look forward to giving evidence to the Committee.
