Backbench Business: Internet of Things: Regulation — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (3 Oct 2019)

Chi Onwurah: electronics show in the world, in Las Vegas. An American start-up literally begged me to put in place security regulations for IOT devices, so that it could compete on a level playing field with the cheap but totally insecure exports from less reputable manufacturers.

Members for Southend West (Sir David Amess) and for East Worthing and Shoreham (Tim Loughton) were right that this is the House at its best—disagreeing politely, but ensuring that issues that frankly are not very popular are debated consensually.

What has happened since then has destroyed that...
