  • Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Elections: Social Media 4 Nov 2019

    To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office, what plans the Government has to implement the recommendations of the Electoral Commission's 2018 report, entitled Digital campaigning: increasing transparency for voters, on the transparency of (a) political online advertising, (b) costs from political parties and (c) sources of campaign funding.
  • Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Campaigns: Disinformation 31 Oct 2019

    To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and Minister for the Cabinet Office, what steps the Government is taking to tackle online deep fakes in political campaigning.
  • Cabinet Office: Topical Questions 23 Oct 2019

    Existing electoral law seeks to control the spending and supervise the message whenever we go into elections. Does the Minister share my concern that it might not be adequate to control and supervise the advertising and campaigning that takes place on social media, where most of our constituents are more likely to get the message and where it is so important to ensure adequate controls?
