Government Computing interview: Peter Cruickshank emphasises the need for human support for e-petitioners

In an overview of e-petitions in the latest issue of Government Computing, Kable (part of the Guardian Media group) surveyed experiences and practices across the UK, including the positive experience of the e-petitioning system which the ITC helped design with the Scottish Parliament.
