It was a delight to welcome over a hundred pupils from primary schools all over Britain to Parliament this afternoon.  The occasion was to award the prizes to the winners of the PITCOM (Parliamentary Information Technology Committee) 2008 Make IT Happen competition.  The schools were asked to use technology to describe how they would change an aspect of their community for the better.  As chair of the judges, I can testify that the final decisions on the national winners were genuinely difficult – the sheer range of ideas, the innovation and enthusiam showed that there is every reason to be confident about the UK’s technological future when these pupils grow up.
