Exiting the European Union: Privilege (28 Jun 2018)

Damian Collins: I thank the Leader of the House for bringing forward this motion today. As she said, this process was initiated by the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee as a consequence of Dominic Cummings’ refusal to appear in front of the Committee when invited to do so and when a formal request had been issued by the Committee. When the House passed the motion on 7 June, this ceased to be...

Previous Business – Commons: Select Committee (28 Jun 2018)

Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs: Pre-Appointment Hearings. 9:45 am; The Grimond Room, Portcullis House
Witnesses: Rt Hon Nicky Morgan MP, Chair, Treasury Committee Damian Collins MP, Chair, Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee

Bill Presented: Privilege (7 Jun 2018)

Damian Collins: For the benefit of the record, Alexander Nix came back to the Select Committee yesterday to give evidence. We were concerned that he had said things that were not consistent with the evidence we had received, and he came back to correct the record and to answer our questions. He was also under investigation by the Electoral Commission, the Information Commissioner and other agencies and other...

Bill Presented: Privilege (7 Jun 2018)

Damian Collins: I beg to move, That this House takes note of the Third Special Report of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee (HC 1115); and orders Mr Dominic Cummings to give an undertaking to the Committee, no later than 6pm on 11 June 2018, to appear before that Committee at a time on or before 20 June 2018. I am grateful to Mr Speaker for allowing the motion to have precedence today. As we...

Bill Presented: Privilege (7 Jun 2018)

Damian Collins: I will not go down that road or follow that bus. As I say, this is not necessarily directly about that campaign, but there is a certain irony when someone who campaigned to restore powers to Parliament is not willing to come to Parliament to give evidence before one of its Committees. This is someone who, in his campaign, was so critical—many would say rightly so—of European civil...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Football: Safe Standing Areas (10 May 2018)

Damian Collins: As the Minister knows, a growing number of clubs are calling for safe standing to be reviewed and reintroduced. Does she think this should now be not the matter of a blanket ban, but a matter for safety authorities, the fans and local authorities, and decided on a case-by-case basis?

Attorney General: Knife Crime (10 May 2018)

Damian Collins: What steps the CPS is taking to improve the rate of prosecution for knife crime.

Attorney General: Knife Crime (10 May 2018)

Damian Collins: Following Donald Trump’s speech to the National Rifle Association, does the Solicitor General agree that the streets of London would be far more dangerous for communities if criminals and gang members were armed with automatic weapons rather than knives? Does he agree that while longer sentences for knife offenders are important, we also need to do more to understand the underlying...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Information Orders (9 May 2018)

Damian Collins: The significance of the Bill and the importance of data and data protection to the economy and the whole of society is reflected in this debate. The fact that amendments have been tabled on Report through the work of three different departmental Select Committees shows how wide-ranging this issue is. I principally want to talk about amendments 20 and 21, which stand in my name and those of...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Information Orders (9 May 2018)

Damian Collins: I am grateful to the Minister for that further clarification. Amendments 20 and 21 get to the heart of an issue that has been raised by a number of Members, which is the power of the Information Commissioner to act in data investigations. The Minister, the right hon. Member for Birmingham, Hodge Hill (Liam Byrne) and others have referenced the Cambridge Analytica data breach scandal, which...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Information Orders (9 May 2018)

Damian Collins: The right hon. Gentleman is absolutely right and that throws up two really important points. The first point is that the Information Commissioner is also currently investigating this, which links to the right hon. Gentleman’s point about where the money comes from and who the data controllers are in these campaigns. Although Facebook is saying that it will in future change its...

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Guidance about how to seek redress against media organisations (9 May 2018)

Damian Collins: My Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee colleague, the hon. Member for Newcastle-under-Lyme (Paul Farrelly)—I call him my hon. Friend—raised the recommendations of the Committee last year. One was that for IPSO to be considered compliant in any way with the spirit of Leveson, it should have a compulsory industry-funded arbitration scheme. While IPSO might not be perfect,...

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Damian Collins: rose—

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Damian Collins: The hon. Member for Bridgend (Mrs Moon) made an important point about the power of the Information Commissioner to investigate these matters. The hon. Gentleman raises serious issues in his remarks, but, often, the Electoral Commission, and the Information Commissioner in particular, do not have the power to go behind the curtain and take the data that they require to support their...

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Damian Collins: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. For the record, I would have applied to speak in this debate, but I have been chairing three and a half hours of Select Committee evidence from Chris Wylie this morning.

EU Referendum: Electoral Law (27 Mar 2018)

Damian Collins: indicated assent.

Cambridge Analytica: Data Privacy (19 Mar 2018)

Damian Collins: (Urgent Question): To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport to make a statement about the alleged breach of Facebook user data by Cambridge Analytica and the powers of the Information Commissioner to act in such cases.

Cambridge Analytica: Data Privacy (19 Mar 2018)

Damian Collins: I thank the Secretary of State for his statement. Does he share my concern that an academic at the University of Cambridge, Aleksandr Kogan, was able to conduct surveys with 270,000 Facebook users, and from that was able to access the data of not just the people who completed those surveys but a greater number of accounts, totalling 50 million user profiles? That information was then sold to...

Cambridge Analytica: Data Privacy (19 Mar 2018)

Damian Collins: They will be.
