But if a week is a long time in politics, a year and a half seems like an eternity, and with little sign of progress, businesses are beginning to wonder just how serious the government is. The acid test will come in March 2006, when the government faces the choice of backing a 10 minute rule bill by Glasgow South MP Tom Harris to update the Computer Misuse Act...
