Telecommunications (Security) Bill: New Clause 1 - OFCOM’s Annual Report (25 May 2021)

Chi Onwurah: ...For a start, if our telecoms network is to be secure, there must be expert democratic oversight of the measures that make it secure—yet the Bill makes no provision for Parliament’s experts, the Intelligence and Security Committee, to be informed or consulted. We want to fix that. Secondly, the security of our network depends on an effective plan to diversify the supply chain. We are...

Public Bill Committee: Advanced Research and Invention Agency Bill: Clause 5 - National Security Directions (22 Apr 2021)

Chi Onwurah: I thank the Minister for her comments, but she has not responded to the underlying and constructive aim of the amendment, which is to ensure that the ISC has sight of intelligence and security decisions. She makes a comparison with UKRI. This agency is about high-risk, high-reward research, which we are told will be transformative. During many of our National Security and Investment Bill...

Public Bill Committee: Advanced Research and Invention Agency Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 Apr 2021)

Chi Onwurah: ...? What I would like to know from both of you, with your wide experience, is what you think ARIA’s goal or purpose should be. What problem should it fix? Ms Goldstaub, you have experience of artificial intelligence, which could be a critical area of research. Do you think it is going to change the nature of research, how we research and how scientific research occurs? How should we...

Chi Onwurah: It is a great pleasure, as always, to follow the Chair of the Intelligence and Security Committee, the right hon. Member for New Forest East (Dr Lewis), and I support many of his remarks. Let me start by saying that the Opposition’s approach to this Bill is one of constructive support. That should not surprise the Minister: already at Committee stage we tabled nearly 30 targeted amendments...

Public Bill Committee: National Security and Investment Bill: New Clause 1 - National Security Definition (10 Dec 2020)

Chi Onwurah: ...this is a new clause, so I do not think the list can have grown. Our national security has changed, and the factors that determine it have expanded significantly. If we look at cyber-security, at artificial intelligence, at the threats that are coming from many different areas of the world and at the different state and non-state actors, we can see that that is absolutely the case. I will...

Public Bill Committee: National Security and Investment Bill: New Clause 1 - National Security Definition (10 Dec 2020)

Chi Onwurah: ...on the threats of modern technology. We are not competing against obvious physical capabilities alone; we are combating covert digital capabilities, too.

Chi Onwurah: ...24 to 26 the level of remedies, in terms of an interim or final notification and how they may affect an entity. Let us consider the example of a British start-up in some very important area—artificial intelligence, let us say—that has an investor lined up and is looking forward to expanding its work because of that investor. As a consequence of the measures in the Bill, however, a...

Public Bill Committee: National Security and Investment Bill: Clause 23 - Meaning of “assessment period” (8 Dec 2020)

Chi Onwurah: ...of voluntary extensions. We do not see that in the US process, which has a number of stages. It allows 45 days for a national security review, including a 30-day limit for the director of national intelligence to submit intelligence analysis and an option of a 15-day presidential determination if needed, but it does not have a voluntary period for extensions. The CMA in this country does...

Public Bill Committee: National Security and Investment Bill: Clause 14 - Mandatory notification procedure (3 Dec 2020)

Chi Onwurah: ...very informative discussions about the difference between “must” and “may”. He observed that the “must” falls on the person who has to do the notifying. For example, it could be a small artificial intelligence start-up with a few members of staff, none of whom is a lawyer—remember that there are no de minimis provisions in the Bill for the size of the acquisition that must be...

Chi Onwurah: ...medium-sized enterprises that may be caught up in the measures under the Bill will not be experts on national security; they may simply be doing world-leading research into particular aspects of artificial intelligence or materials science, so having some guidance would be of significant help to them. Providing guidance only matches what countries across the world already do and is what...

Public Bill Committee: National Security and Investment Bill: Clause 1 - Call-in notice for national security purposes (1 Dec 2020)

Chi Onwurah: ...wholeheartedly on the security of our nation. That is where its support is invaluable.

On Second Reading, the Chair of the Select Committee on Foreign Affairs, the hon. Member for Tonbridge and Malling (Tom Tugendhat), said that “there is a...

Public Bill Committee: National Security and Investment Bill: Clause 1 - Call-in notice for national security purposes (1 Dec 2020)

Chi Onwurah: ...emphasised that point more. When we look at the examples of Huawei or DeepMind, which was allowed to be sold to Google in 2014, we are looking backwards. We now recognise the security implications. Artificial intelligence is a key security capability, as I think the Minister will agree, given that it is one of the 17 sectors for which notification will be mandatory. At that time, it was...

Telecommunications (Security) Bill (30 Nov 2020)

Chi Onwurah: ...our businesses, our industries and our daily lives. It will not only vastly improve our connectivity and browsing experience but support new enabling technologies, from the internet of things to artificial intelligence.

Public Bill Committee: National Security and Investment Bill: Examination of Witness (26 Nov 2020)

Chi Onwurah: ...concerns. You will be familiar with a number of cases, such as Arm and DeepMind, to name just two, that involved an economic security issue, you could argue—in terms of sovereign capability in artificial intelligence in the case of DeepMind, and of mobile silicon in the case of Arm—but that pretty swiftly turned into national security concerns. This Bill identifies a number of...

Public Bill Committee: National Security and Investment Bill: Examination of Witness (24 Nov 2020)

Chi Onwurah: ...to national security in the future, but they are important to industrial and economic strategy now.

Public Bill Committee: National Security and Investment Bill: Examination of Witness (24 Nov 2020)

Chi Onwurah: ...up capturing a host of investment transactions? I am particularly thinking of the burden and impact on our innovative tech start-ups.
