The generation gap is not the only reason for Britain's "digital divide", the Learning Skills Council (LSC) has suggested.LSC, which works to improve the skills of the country's working population, suggested that social deprivation is also a factor which can affect an individual's computer literacy.Jon Gamble, a spokesperson for the organisation, commented: "About ten per cent of 16-24 year olds don't use computers and the internet, often because they face more pressing personal challenges in their lives - for instance homelessness, abuse or drug misuse."According to the LSC, around 58 per cent of those living in social housing do not have access to the internet.A recent report in the Times found that one-in-five Britons lack basic computer skills and cannot open a word processing document, while 16 per cent of people are incapable of using an internet search engine, such as Google.
