Local authorities are making increasing use of the Internet, but few have authorised access to the information network for their own councillors.

A survey by the Association of District Councils found that 70% of a sample of 168 councils use the Internet as an information source. Three-quarters of respondents indicated that they would have an Internet presence by the summer.

But only 3% had authorised access for members, despite the 'obvious potential' for electronic mail communication with their authority and constituents.

The ADC has produced a new local authority guide to the internet called net.working. It is available from the association for£75, or£50 for orders of 10 copies or more. Tel: 0171 233 6868.
