Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Social Services (27 Nov 2017)

Damian Green: The Government has committed to publishing a Green Paper on care and support by summer 2018. In developing the Green Paper, it is right that we take the time needed to debate the many complex issues and listen to the perspectives of experts and care users, building consensus around reforms which can succeed. This is why we are starting a process of initial engagement over the coming months...

Damian Green: Our national cyber-security strategy, supported by £1.9 billion of transformational investment, sets out measures to defend our people, businesses and assets, deter our adversaries and develop cyber-skills. These include the creation of the National Cyber Security Centre and direct investment in central and local government, the health sector and the defence sector.

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Public Sector Cyber-security (22 Nov 2017)

Damian Green: Yes, indeed. That is the whole point not just of the National Cyber Security Centre, but of the very significant investment I have just mentioned—£1.9 billion—which is set to transform defences against cyber-attack across the public sector, for central and local government, particularly the health and defence sectors, as well as advising the private sector, because our defences obviously...

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Public Sector Cyber-security (22 Nov 2017)

Damian Green: My hon. Friend is right that we need proper co-ordination. That co-ordination role falls to the Cabinet Office, but clearly there are important areas where the Home Office has direct responsibility for operational matters, and obviously the Ministry of Defence has responsibilities in purely military terms. I am happy to reassure him that the co-ordination comes through the Cabinet Office.

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Public Sector Cyber-security (22 Nov 2017)

Damian Green: The hon. Gentleman raises a serious point. There is no evidence of any successful attempt to interfere with our electoral processes. Indeed, it is particularly difficult to have a cyber-attack against an electoral system that requires voters to put crosses on pieces of paper using small pencils, so that undoubtedly old-fashioned system is very effective against cyber-attack.

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Public Sector Cyber-security (22 Nov 2017)

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Public Sector Cyber-security (22 Nov 2017)

It is a continuous programme of continuous improvement.

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Topical Questions (22 Nov 2017)

Damian Green: Following the Prime Minister’s July announcement that a public inquiry will be held into the contaminated blood scandal, the Government sought views from the affected community on how that should operate.

We are improving the visibility of supply chain opportunities available to SMEs via that site.

I also hope to agree heads of terms for the Stirling and Clackmannanshire...

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Topical Questions (22 Nov 2017)

Damian Green: The hon. Lady raises a very serious point. The contaminated blood scandal of the ’70s and ’80s was an appalling tragedy that should not have happened.
