The Government has unveiled the list of the first wave of public services which it will digitalise by 2015, the Minister for the Cabinet Office, Francis Maude, announced today.
The first wave of services to go online includes tax assessment and applications for visas, apprenticeships and pensions.
The new digital programme will give the public quicker and more convenient services and will save taxpayers up to £1.2 billion by 2015 and around £1.7 billion a year thereafter.
Minister for the Cabinet Office Francis Maude said:

The new digital services announced today include:
