The Campaign for Unmetered Telecommunications (CUT) has written to the British government to express its disappointment at last week's debate on the cost of Net access in the UK. In an open letter to DTI minister Michael Wills, CUT accuses the Minister for Communications of making "self-contradictory statements on the floor of the House". Alastair Scott, Moderator of CUT, said: "We were very disappointed with Mr Wills' response. "Steve Webb MP, who initiated the debate, made an excellent speech which covered almost all current issues and made some very pointed remarks about what could happen in the future." CUT claims Mr Wills evaded answering the questions raised and is gobsmacked by Mr Wills' assertion that that the take-up of Internet access is not dependent on the cost of that access. ®
