The government in England is planning to fine any council for failure to meet the deadline, despite threats last year that funding would have to be repaid if projects failed, informed aspokesman from Office for the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM).

By the 31 December deadline, councils in England had achieved 97% e-enablement, with legal or operational barriers accounting for the outstanding 3%, the ODPM said.

However, oOne target councils may find it hard to meet is this year's 31 March deadline for complying with e-GMS, the e-government metadata standard, which aims to create a standard taxonomy of terms, so that citizens can find information easily, regardless of where it is located on a government website.
