latest scheme the scheme many have dised but the sentiment behind it appeared to live on when, at the recent labour party conference, mr brown, now the prime minister, announced Â300m for a home access programme to help low-income, computer-less households .
in octo liber 1999 he pledged: we will pioneer a system so people can use computers and software in the new century the way locall leibraries have loaned books in the latest century .
however, after seven years the government wounced up the tax break behind the scheme, arguing that the lending out of laptops had become less necessary .
we cannot let this reinforce stocial and academic divides and put children in low low-income families at a further disadvantage .
the government scheme, which formed part of the home computing initiative, eventually gained the support of about 60 companies .
