Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown calls for Government information campaign on 5G Huawei decision

Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown highlights concerns following the Government's decision to allow Huawei technology to be used in the UK's 5G mobile networks and calls on the Government to run an information campaign to explain the technical, oversight and regulatory aspects of the arrangement.

I welcome my right hon. Friend’s statement, but he must recognise that there are considerable fears about this decision. In order to allay those, will he run a Government information campaign to deal with the technical issues—the oversight by the cybersecurity centre, and the difference between the core and the periphery—and to detail the stringent worldwide regulatory powers he is going to put in place?

I thank my hon. Friend, and we will certainly look at both those points.
