Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Media Matters (23 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Wright: On 10 January 2019, News UK submitted an application to vary certain conditions put in place in 1981 by the then Secretary of State for Trade. The changes proposed by News UK would allow The Times and The Sunday Times to share journalistic resources, subject to the agreement of each newspaper’s editor. Having considered News UK’s application and representations made following an...

Telecoms Supply Chain Review (22 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Wright: The hon. Gentleman was doing so well until the end; I suppose I should be grateful he did not quote, “Start spreading the news, I’m leaving today”. First, on the hon. Gentleman’s last remarks, let me say that the feeling is entirely mutual: I have enjoyed working with him and his colleagues. Our constituents expect not just the cut and thrust of debate across this Dispatch Box, which...

Telecoms Supply Chain Review (22 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Wright: My right hon. and learned Friend is right to highlight the ISC’s statement, which has been an important contribution to the debate. As he knows, there is a significant overlap between what it says and the review’s conclusions. On Ofcom’s powers and the resources that must flow with those, I agree that it will be necessary to make sure that Ofcom has the resources to discharge its new...

Telecoms Supply Chain Review (22 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Wright: The hon. Gentleman has asked a number of questions; let me try to deal with as many of them as I can. On the hon. Gentleman’s last point about Chinese involvement in the wider economy, he will recognise that there is a balance to be struck between welcoming inward investment into our economy, which we do, and wanting to be confident that our security requirements are met. In relation to...

Telecoms Supply Chain Review (22 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Wright: The commercial decisions that mobile network operators are making now about what equipment to buy are part of a continuing process. All those mobile network operators will need to consider carefully the position I have outlined today and make the appropriate commercial judgments, but we are seeking to move as quickly as we reasonably can to give them the clarity they need to continue making...

Telecoms Supply Chain Review (22 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Wright: The right hon. Gentleman is right to talk about managed risk. He will recognise that we have been managing the risk presented by Huawei’s specific circumstances within the 4G network for some considerable time. He is also right, of course, that we have to consider the potential delay to the roll-out caused by any measures we decide are necessary. I repeat that the most important criterion...

Telecoms Supply Chain Review (22 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Wright: I am grateful for my right hon. Friend’s comments. Of course, he is right that we should take no risks that are not manageable. Once we are in the possession of all the information we should have, we will have to judge whether we are capable of managing the appropriate risk effectively. If we are not, it is a risk that we should not take. On that I entirely agree, but that decision has not...

Telecoms Supply Chain Review (22 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Wright: The right hon. Gentleman is right, but they are not mutually exclusive. We can and should do both. Diversification will not happen overnight, which is one reason why I want to proceed as swiftly as possible with that track. It will take time for us to develop diversification in the market, but none the less we should seek to do so in the longer term. In the shorter term, he is also right—he...

Telecoms Supply Chain Review (22 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Wright: I am very grateful for my right hon. Friend’s support. As he knows, my clear intent in commissioning the review was to focus first and foremost on security. No other consideration comes ahead of security. Fundamentally, we must make a decision on the basis of what is in our security interests, but he is also right that if we were to focus solely on one company or country, we would miss the...

Telecoms Supply Chain Review (22 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Wright: I know that the right hon. Gentleman regularly raises this issue with colleagues from the Foreign Office. As he knows, we are concerned about it across Government. It is important that the UK Government, in their communications with the Chinese Government, stress the importance of human rights and their protections for minorities as well as for majority populations in China, and we will...

Telecoms Supply Chain Review (22 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Wright: I certainly think that my hon. Friend’s description justifies his reference to difficult issues. As for whether they are insurmountable, if he will forgive me I will not answer that question, because it would predetermine the outcome of the review that still has to happen specifically in relation to Huawei. However, all the points that he has made are proper for consideration as we make...

Telecoms Supply Chain Review (22 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Wright: As I said to the right hon. Member for Carshalton and Wallington, the UK Government are not uninterested in this subject; far from it. The hon. Gentleman will understand, however, that the parameters of the review that we are undertaking here relate to what measures it is sensible to take to protect our security interests within the UK telecoms network. Elsewhere in the Government, we...

Telecoms Supply Chain Review (22 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Wright: Yes, I do agree with my hon. Friend. I think that both those points are important. We need to build the framework in a way that enables it to adapt as the technology develops, and we will seek to do that. My hon. Friend will have heard me say that we intend to consult on the specifics of the telecoms security requirements. The matter will then come to the House, because we will need to...

Telecoms Supply Chain Review (22 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Wright: With your permission, Mr Speaker, I would like to make a statement. New telecoms technologies and next generation networks such as 5G and full fibre can change our lives for the better. They can give us the freedom to live and work more freely, they can help rural communities to develop thriving digital economies and they can help the socially isolated to maintain relationships. They can...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Food: Advertising (22 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Wright: We want to reduce children’s exposure to advertising for products high in fat, salt and sugar (HFSS), so have consulted on introducing a 9pm watershed on TV and similar protection online (including around on-demand services), as well as other possible options. Despite strict restrictions already being in place to prohibit HFSS product advertising around children’s programming, and similar...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Television: Licensing (22 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Wright: The Government remains clear that residents of care homes may be eligible for an Accommodation for Residential Care (ARC) licence fee concession. Licences issued under this concession currently cost £7.50 per room, flat or bungalow, and the Government has no intention to change this. Guidance on the concession can be found on the TV Licensing website: https://www.tvlicensing.co.uk/faqs/FAQ78 .

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Cybercrime (22 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Wright: We are working with industry to understand rollout plans for DNS over HTTPS, including intentions relating to the use of resolvers. We are working closely with the National Cyber Security Centre to ensure that cyber security implications are considered alongside privacy and safety implications of DNS over HTTPS and that solutions will not compromise the security of UK businesses and citizens...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Internet: Cryptography (22 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Wright: We are aware of ongoing developments relating to the DNS and HTTPS protocol and are working with industry and other relevant stakeholders on them. Work to understand the potential implications on online safety and other government policies is ongoing and we are committed to ensure that online protections are maintained.

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Gambling: Video Games (22 Jul 2019)

Jeremy Wright: Products, such as loot boxes, and other microtransactions in online games have to comply with consumer legislation which protects consumers of all ages from misleading and/or aggressive marketing. Consumers requiring advice should contact the Citizens Advice consumer service on 03454 04 05 06 (www.citizensadvice.org.uk/). Consumers living in Scotland should contact Advice Direct Scotland on...
