In emergencies the vulnerable are most likely to need help, they are also most likely to suffer #DigitalExclusion.
The Tories haven't produced a digital inclusion strategy since 2014 so I asked the Govt what they are doing to make a National Emergency Alert reaches everyone. pic.twitter.com/Uv3F401kct

During a national emergency, it is the most vulnerable who are likely to be the most in need, but they are also the most likely to be digitally excluded. In the absence of a digital inclusion strategy or even target from the Government since 2014, we do not know where those people are. In response to the test, what steps will the right hon. Gentleman take to ensure that those who are digitally excluded will be better included and reached in a national emergency?
