Cebr’s Head of Environment, Infrastructure, & Local Growth Rowlando Morgan gave evidence last week at the Lords Digital Committee’s digital exclusion hearings.
Drawing on work carried out by Cebr for The Good Things Foundation on the economic impact of digital skills and inclusion in the UK, the committee heard that an investment of £1.4 billion in basic digital skills could deliver up to £13.7 billion in economic benefits. This is a return of £9.48 for every £1 invested.
Rowlando provided evidence on the channels through which enhancing the UK’s basic digital skills can provide benefits to the wider economy, as well as the consequences of digital exclusion.
