COMMISSION PLAN FOR COMPUTER LINKS HITS TROUBLE

The European Commission’s proposal for a five-year programme to promote computer links between national administrations ran into trouble at the Telecommunications Council on Tuesday, Reuter reports from Brussels: some delegations said there was no evidence that the proposal to spend $200m on the Interchange of Data between Administrations programme was needed and the ministers sent it back for more study; the Commission proposed the scheme to help state agencies build up their telematics links so they can exchange information on the new Single Market more easily; sceptics included not only the UK, Germany and the Netherlands but inveterate Big Spenders France and Ireland.
