LONDON Feb 14: Boris Johnson has hatched secret plans to move public services entirely online after the pandemic, news reports say. The Prime Minister reportedly wants to turn planning applications, renewing driving licences and doctors’ diagnoses to digital only.

Mr Johnson is joined by Michael Gove in spearheading the move to eradicate the growing backlog caused by the coronavirus.

The Cabinet is said to be annoyed with the way parts of the government machine has tackled the pandemic since it started to rip across Britain last year.

The newly-formed Public Services Recovery Committee will be part of the National Economic and Recovery Taskforce and will answer to the PM and Rishi Sunak.

They want to be certain public services remember the lessons learned from people staying at home during the coronavirus crisis.

Justice Secretary Robert Buckland, Communities Secretary Robert Jenrick, Health Secretary Matt Hancock and Education Secretary Gavin Williamson are also on the committee.
