A pilot project to investigate the potential of information superhighways for government was announced today by Robert Hughes, junior minister for science and public service.

'The information superhighway is going to change our day-to-day lives. There is potential to transform public service and the government is committed to being at the forefront of these developments,' said Mr Hughes.

A superhighway would provide access to government information via the Internet.

Information systems of the future may give benefit advice, take orders for driving licences and give details of job vacancies.

'Information superhighways will help to improve public service to the citizen. In the future the public could have access to government information from a single point of entry,' said Mr Hughes.

'The new technologies will have widespread and beneficial implications for government business.'
