Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Covid-19: Vulnerable Online Gamblers (27 Apr 2020)

John Nicolson: Estimates indicate that as many as 200,000 people in Scotland are problem gamblers. Last week, a Survation poll showed an apparent fall in part-time gambling as a result of the coronavirus lock-in, perhaps masking more intense betting among problem gamblers.

Lesbian, Bisexual and Trans Women’s Health Inequalities (10 Mar 2020)

John Nicolson: Does my hon. Friend agree that while it now seems socially unacceptable to express anti-gay thoughts and feelings, by contrast we appear to be having an open season on trans people, which is deplorable. Does she also agree that that must be deeply disturbing for young trans people who are trying to come to terms with who they are?

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill: Code rights in respect of land connected to leased premises (10 Mar 2020)

John Nicolson: I support amendment 1. I think that the Secretary of State took eight or nine interventions, and I was interested in his language. As a journalist, I know that when politicians talk about “moving towards”, it means that there is no end in sight, and that “like to” means “perhaps, but I am not going to give any commitment of any kind”. We could sense the feeling of disappointment...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill: Code rights in respect of land connected to leased premises (10 Mar 2020)

John Nicolson: I certainly do agree with the hon. Gentleman: I think that he is absolutely right. One of the peculiarities of the Government’s position, from our perspective, is that they are prepared to invest billions in fighting 20th-century battles—renewing Trident, for instance—while opening their arms to 21st-century threats to cyber-security. As the hon. Gentleman suggests, countering those...

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Leasehold Property) Bill: Code rights in respect of land connected to leased premises (10 Mar 2020)

Huawei and 5G — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (4 Mar 2020)

John Nicolson: The Government have found themselves between a rock and a hard place, facing a decision between spiralling costs and high security. We have serious concerns about establishing such a fundamental part of our digital infrastructure with Chinese-owned technology. Any and all our concerns and doubts about the impact it could have on the security and autonomy of our data must be answered beyond...

Huawei and 5G — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (4 Mar 2020)

John Nicolson: No, I would not put faith in them, not least because there is little consensus among former heads of intelligence about the issue.

Huawei and 5G — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (4 Mar 2020)

John Nicolson: I will not; I will make progress. The UK has spent, and continues to spend, billions of pounds on the development, maintenance and renewal of 20th-century defence systems, such as Trident, that are simply not fit to face the security challenges of the modern era. The biggest threats we now face—terrorism, climate change and, of course, cyber-security—will not be deterred by...
