Kudos from Prime Minister
"The Internet is
for everyone - providing social and economic
advantage and limitless opportunity to
those who use the web. The winners of
the Cable & Wireless Childnet Awards
2003 truly bring the Internet to life
- inspiring young people to express opinions,
share skills and communicate with others
around the world.
I am therefore delighted
to welcome them to the UK - now one of
the world's most 'connected' economies.
With a network of over 6000 UK online
centres, thousands more can now enjoy
the benefits of the Internet - and we
have made a commitment to ensure that
all those who want to access the Intenet
can do so by 2005.
Yet we all have a responsibility
to ensure that the Internet is a great
and safe place, which can be used by people
from all generations. The Awards demonstrate
what can be achieved via the Internet
and I would like to pass on my sincere
congratulations to the winners and to
all of those who entered the Awards."
Tony Blair, April 2003
