Daniel Zeichner MP Comments on Loss of Key Staff at the Government Digital Service

16th December 2016

Chair of the APPG on Data Analytics, Daniel Zeichner MP, has been quoted by BBC News on the latest news that 10 senior civil servants are to leave the Government Digital Service (GDS) by April. 

"The GDS, which was set up within the Cabinet Office in 2011, helps to support the digital transformation of government, working with departments to introduce and improve online services."

Daniel Zeichner, Labour MP for Cambridge and chairman of the all-party parliamentary group on data analytics, said: "At this critical time it is alarming to learn that significant numbers of key people are leaving the Government Digital Service.

"The sector is key to our competitiveness and future prosperity - we cannot afford to be losing key people at this important time."
