I've got quite a few contacts in the Conservative party, so I'll see
what I can dig out.

The proposals for more open standards and a more modular approach to
government IT projects seems sound to me.

I fail to see what this has got to do with Linux, though. The BSI
provide thousands of open standards, only a handful of which are
anything to do with Linux. Rather, I think the policy focus is on open
standards such as XML.
