Health and Social Care: Covid-19 Vaccination Programme (23 Feb 2021)

Matthew Hancock: ...hotel quarantine and home quarantine; all need to be tested; and all the positive test results are sent for sequencing so that we can spot any new variants. This is a critical part of our national defences. The good news is that we can see from the data that the number of new variants in the country is falling and is much lower than it was last month. We obviously keep a very close eye on...

Covid-19 Update (9 Feb 2021)

Matthew Hancock: With permission, I would like to make a statement on new measures to keep this country safe from coronavirus. Thanks to our collective efforts, we are turning a corner. Cases of coronavirus have fallen 47% in the last two weeks, and they are falling in all parts of the UK, but we are not there yet. Hospitalisations are falling, but there are still many more people in hospital than at the...

Covid-19 Update (2 Feb 2021)

Matthew Hancock: I would be happy to talk to the Secretary of State for Defence about that idea, because we are leaning into the global vaccination effort, not just with the funding to COVAX and Gavi that my right hon. Friend mentioned but with practical support—including, of course, the Oxford vaccine itself, which is the most deployable vaccine and the only one currently being used that has been...

Covid-19 (22 Oct 2020)

Matthew Hancock: I thought that the hon. Gentleman’s comments were very thoughtful until we got to the unnecessary political knockabout. I want to make a couple of factual points about the app. It only takes the first two segments of someone’s postcode, some of which spread over two different alert levels, so that is why it describes the situation in Leicester as it does. When it comes to making sure that...

Covid-19 Update (19 Oct 2020)

Matthew Hancock: I would like to make a statement on coronavirus. As winter draws in, the virus is on the offensive: 40 million coronavirus case have now been recorded worldwide. Weekly deaths in Europe have increased by 33% and here in the UK, deaths have tragically doubled in the last 12 days. The situation remains perilous. While the disease is dangerous for all adults, especially with growing evidence of...

Covid-19 Update (5 Oct 2020)

Matthew Hancock: The short answer is yes. My hon. Friend makes an important case. The restart of elective operations in the NHS is now proceeding apace. Of course, the more we can keep the virus under control, the easier that restart is. In any case, the NHS has done a huge amount of work over the summer to try to separate, as much as is possible, the NHS into “covid green” areas, where we have a high...

Covid-19 (28 Sep 2020)

Matthew Hancock: ...From today, we have introduced a £500 support payment for those self-isolating on low incomes. On top of that, I can tell the House that we are providing £15 million so that local authorities can make discretionary payments to people who do not meet the criteria of the scheme but may also face financial hardship if they have to self-isolate and cannot work. We know that self-isolation...

Covid-19 Update (21 Sep 2020)

Matthew Hancock: With permission, Mr Speaker, I would like to make a statement on coronavirus. This deadly virus continues to advance across the world. The World Health Organisation has confirmed that the number of new cases in Europe is now higher than during the peak in March. Here, the latest Office for National Statistics figures indicate 6,000 new infections a day—almost double the previous week. As...

Covid-19 Update (17 Sep 2020)

Matthew Hancock: With permission, Mr Speaker, I would like to make a statement on coronavirus and about our plans to put us in the strongest possible position for this winter. Like many other countries around the world, we are continuing to see a concerning rise in cases, with 3,991 new cases recorded yesterday, and this week the number of patients in mechanical ventilator beds has risen above 100 for the...

Coronavirus (15 Sep 2020)

Matthew Hancock: We absolutely need to control this virus. I very much hope that we will make very significant progress, through treatments and vaccines, within the sorts of times that I set out previously—definitely in less than a millennium. I think that we will make significant progress in the coming months. However, in that time, we do have to control the virus. We took the action in Sandwell having...

Covid-19 Update (8 Sep 2020)

Matthew Hancock: ...down, but we all have a role to play in this, because the local action and the test and trace—actions that we take in Government and with local authorities—are only the second and third line of defence. The first line of defence, for everybody in this Chamber and all our constituents, is to follow the social-distancing advice. We will be stepping up the communications and making sure...

Covid-19 (1 Sep 2020)

Matthew Hancock: With your permission, and indeed your encouragement, Mr Speaker, I would like to make a statement on coronavirus. The latest figures demonstrate how much progress we are making in our fight against this invisible killer. There are currently 60 patients in mechanical ventilator beds with coronavirus—that is down from 3,300 at the peak—and the latest daily number for recorded deaths is two....

Covid-19 Response (22 Apr 2020)

Matthew Hancock: With permission, Mr Speaker, I would like to make a statement on coronavirus. First, may I say how pleased I am that the House is sitting once again? At this important time, it is critical that we have the scrutiny and debate that the House provides. I thank everybody who was involved in setting up the new arrangements, which demonstrate that no virus or threat will thwart our democracy....

Wuhan Coronavirus (3 Feb 2020)

Matthew Hancock: ...83 British nationals left Wuhan for the UK, and I want to thank all those involved in that operation, including staff at my own Department, the Foreign Office, Border Force, the Ministry of Defence and military medics, as well as all the NHS staff, officials at Public Health England and many more who have worked 24/7 on our response so far. Yesterday, we brought back a further 11 people...

Offensive Weapons Bill - Second Reading (7 Jan 2019)

Lord Bilimoria: ...of corrosive products and the possession of corrosive substances. It talks about the sale and delivery of bladed weapons. The Minister spoke about the online sale of knives. Clauses 17 to 19 would make a remote sale an offence in certain circumstances. The Explanatory Notes to the Bill state that, for the purposes of this offence, a bladed product is defined as, “articles which have a...

Public Bill Committee: Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Inquiry into issues arising from data protection breaches committed by or on behalf of news publishers (20 Mar 2018)

...of all parties. In most cases, this was done without any legitimate public interest justification. Many blags were ‘fishing expeditions’ which, by definition, do not satisfy the public interest defence for section 55 of the Data Protection Act 1998. I was tasked by at least 20 journalists at the Sunday Times, most of them senior, including by very senior executives. They all knew what...

Russian Interference in Uk Politics (21 Dec 2017)

Matthew Hancock: ...that online users are able critically to analyse and properly question sources of information and news, especially when they relate to political or polling activity. He is right that our best defence fundamentally is our critical faculty as a society, and long-term work to ensure that that is strong is important. This has been a very informed debate. In recognition of the new threats posed...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Cybercrime (11 Oct 2017)

Matthew Hancock: ...to be in place to build security into internet-connected products and services. This will help protect devices from being hijacked or misused as part of a DDoS attack. The NCSC’s Active Cyber Defence programme is a mechanism through which it is working with the Internet Service Provider community in order to make DDoS attacks harder systemically.

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Cybercrime: Infrastructure (11 Oct 2017)

Matthew Hancock: ...encourages organisations to understand and design their systems to be resilient to a range of common attacks, including Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. The NCSC’s Active Cyber Defence programme is a mechanism through which it is working with the Internet Service Provider community in order to make DDoS attacks harder systemically. The Government is working closely with...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Second Reading (Continued) (10 Oct 2017)

Lord Black of Brentwood: ..., who is still much missed in this House. He went out of his way to consult the industry and respond to its concerns. I remember with affection many meetings with him, not least as he was able to make the issue of data protection amusing, which is no small feat. To pick up on the comments of the noble Baroness, Lady Lane-Fox, I do not know whether he would have been able to make it...
