Lastminute.com founder Martha Lane Fox is set to continue in her role as the UK's Digital Champion, the government has confirmed.

The entrepreneur was originally given the position by the previous Labour government, but the new coalition of Liberal Democrat and Conservative MPs has revealed she will remain in the position.

She will work with the government on schemes designed to get as many people online as possible, as well as improve the efficiency of public services offered through web-based mediums.

Prime Minister David Cameron said he was "delighted" that Ms Lane Fox would be keeping the position.

He added: "Getting online can help people save money, find a job, access services in a way that works for them, and make connections with each other and with their community. It will also help us all to drive down the cost of delivering public services."

Ms Lane Fox recently praised broadband provider TalkTalk for its involvement in the Race Online 2012 initiative, which aims to get more people connected to the web.
