Public Bill Committee: Telecommunications (Security) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (19 Jan 2021)

David Johnston: Q May I briefly interrupt? I accept that there are not many suppliers now. Given the money that the Government are going to invest in trying to support having more suppliers, how many would you like to see and by what timeframe?

Remote Education and Free School Meals (18 Jan 2021)

David Johnston: I put on record my thanks to all the staff at the schools in Wantage and Didcot who have worked tirelessly through the pandemic to make sure that children and young people get at least some education. I do not think that there is a Member of this House who does not want to see all children get high-quality, nutritious food, and have laptops and high-quality internet access. It is right that...

Public Bill Committee: Telecommunications (Security) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 Jan 2021)

David Johnston: Q That was a helpful teaser of what you think about this legislation. Could you expand on exactly why you have that view on what you see as the inadequacies?

Public Bill Committee: Telecommunications (Security) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 Jan 2021)

David Johnston: Q Just to be clear, is your critique of this legislation that you feel that something is missing from it? Or, given that you think breaches are a case of “when” rather than “if”, which I am happy to accept, is your critique that no one piece of legislation could totally protect us from this, and that it is about what the whole sector is doing to keep us secure?

Public Bill Committee: Telecommunications (Security) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 Jan 2021)

David Johnston: Yes, although I was going to ask them who they think is best to answer it.

Public Bill Committee: Telecommunications (Security) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 Jan 2021)

David Johnston: Q We asked the previous witnesses this question. When it comes to stringency on these issues, do any of you feel able to give us a sense of the international comparison between the regime that this Bill creates and regimes around the world?

Public Bill Committee: Telecommunications (Security) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 Jan 2021)

David Johnston: I think we all support diversification in principle, but what does success look like for the two of you? How many companies would it be? We have only two vendors that we can choose from at the moment, so how many do you think is acceptable? Is there an analogous comparison for you, whether in tech or elsewhere, of the much broader choice that we should be aiming for, and how long do you think...

Public Bill Committee: Telecommunications (Security) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 Jan 2021)

David Johnston: Q So you do not want to put a number on it, but is there another sector that you would draw a comparison with that does not have this problem and is, in principle, the sort of thing we should be aiming for here?

Domestic Abuse and Hidden Harms during Lockdown (14 Jan 2021)

David Johnston: I warmly welcome the launch of the new codeword scheme today. I have a constituent whose abusive partner is the subject of a non-molestation order, but because the place where she lives is the place where they had a joint business, he has managed to get the zonal aspect of the order lifted, on the ground that he needs to be in the location for business. The abuse has restarted, and during...

Public Bill Committee: Telecommunications (Security) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 Jan 2021)

David Johnston: It was widely reported that between 2009 and 2011, Vodafone found back-door vulnerabilities in equipment in Italy, and that you were assured by Huawei that they were being removed. You subsequently found that, in fact, they had not been removed. Do you have any concerns about back-door vulnerabilities in the equipment between now and 2027, and can you give us a sense of your management of...

Covid-19: Vaccinations (11 Jan 2021)

David Johnston: I congratulate my hon. Friend on the start to the vaccination programme. Local health leaders in Oxfordshire have made a great start, too, but they report a worrying trend of those from ethnic minorities not taking up the vaccine at the same rate as other groups. Can my hon. Friend set out his strategy to make sure that all our constituents take up this vital vaccine?

Christmas Adjournment (17 Dec 2020)

David Johnston: Before I talk about the many things I want to talk about today, I will mention two other things quickly. First, I pass up no opportunity to mention the need to reopen Grove station in my constituency, which my constituents have wanted for over 40 years. Thousands more houses have gone into that area, with very congested roads. I have told my constituents that I will keep going and going until...

Uyghur Slave Labour: Xinjiang (16 Dec 2020)

David Johnston: In the 21st century, businesses put a great premium on showing that they are socially responsible, yet it is impossible to be one if you use products that are the result of forced labour, so does my hon. Friend agree that our businesses need to establish immediately whether they are using anything that is a product of forced labour, and if they are, to cease doing so immediately?

Online Harms Consultation (15 Dec 2020)

David Johnston: I welcome my right hon. Friend’s statement. Large tech platforms build incredibly complicated models to track our every move, profile us and suggest products that we might want to buy. They even now read our messages and suggest how we might like to reply, and yet when it comes to removing harmful content, they suggest that it is too difficult for them. Does he agree that what he is setting...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (15 Dec 2020)

David Johnston: On Thursday, I had the pleasure of taking my hon. Friend the Member for Derby North (Amanda Solloway), the Minister for science, research and innovation, to Greencore’s Springfield Meadow development in my constituency, where it is building not just net-zero homes but carbon-positive homes and selling them to Sovereign Housing at precisely the same cost as for any other kind of home. Will...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Carbon Emissions (15 Dec 2020)

David Johnston: What steps his Department is taking to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

Home Department: Covid-19: Domestic Abuse (14 Dec 2020)

David Johnston: What steps her Department is taking to protect victims of domestic abuse.

Home Department: Covid-19: Domestic Abuse (14 Dec 2020)

David Johnston: Reducing the Risk supports victims of domestic abuse in my constituency and across Oxfordshire, and it was grateful to receive some of the funding that my hon. Friend refers to and which has helped it to support 50% more people. One of the things it focuses on is prevention. Does my hon. Friend agree that although we have to deal with the cases that we have seen spike during this year, we...

Future Relationship with the EU (10 Dec 2020)

David Johnston: My right hon. Friend will know that, throughout this process, some have tried to suggest that the Government actively want to trade only on WTO terms, but does she agree that the huge amount of time and effort spent on the negotiations in these months shows that the Government do want a good trade deal, but, rightly, not at any cost?

Covid-19 Vaccine Roll-out (8 Dec 2020)

David Johnston: May I add my congratulations to my right hon. Friend and the many people who got us to the heart-warming images that we saw this morning? A lot of the highest priority groups in my constituency live in more remote villages rather than in towns, and there are issues from transport connections to a fear of going out. Will my right hon. Friend assure me that those factors that affect more remote...
