Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (22 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: Of course I congratulate those who win that Twitter competition, but the hon. Lady raises a serious point. We are already taking action, both through the Data Protection Bill, which will protect children online, and more broadly through the internet safety strategy. I pay tribute to Baroness Kidron and other peers who have put a huge amount of effort into getting the details of the Bill...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (22 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: The point that I have made repeatedly about the Leveson inquiry is that it was broad and police investigations followed it. The question we face now is what to do in future. I am determined to make sure that we get the answer to that question right.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (22 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: Of course they were comprehensive. If the hon. Gentleman’s accusations of perjury, which he is alleging today, are true, then we have rules in place to deal with them. If there is evidence of criminal wrongdoing, it should be brought forward, and that is the proper way to proceed.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (22 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: I would be delighted to meet my hon. Friend on that question. He has done so much to promote the importance of the fourth industrial revolution and artificial intelligence. Indeed, I am on the board of a World Economic Forum body, which is looking into how we can make the most of this, and I look forward to engaging with him on it.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (22 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: There is clearly huge benefit for both the rest of the EU and the UK in having a strong, rich and deep relationship in terms of how data are transferred, but as the evidence of the past few days has shown, that must be done on the basis of strong data protection. That is why we have the Data Protection Bill before the House, and why we think that the GDPR is a good measure that we will not...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (22 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: It is increasingly clear that we need a new settlement with these big tech companies. There is no doubt that the Data Protection Bill currently before this Parliament takes us significantly forward. I have been worried for some time about these concerns, which is why we brought forward this Bill.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (22 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: We have made it extremely clear that we are prepared to legislate further if that is necessary. We are currently consulting on the internet safety strategy. I would be very happy if the hon. Gentleman wanted to feed back into that. We have shown, and made the case, over the past year that this wild west free-for-all of the internet companies must come to an end, and this is a turning point.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (22 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: Nobody has done more to make the case for the rejuvenation of the Bradford Odeon than my hon. Friend. The Odeon has applied to our fund for support for its rejuvenation, right in the heart of Bradford, and this man has put his heart and soul into the campaign. We will be announcing the results very soon. I cannot tell him the answer today, but I have a smile on my face.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (22 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: We are absolutely determined to ensure that there is decent mobile coverage where people live, work and travel right across the UK. We have made further progress in Scotland than in any other part of the country. There is clearly more to do and we are absolutely determined to do it.

Cambridge Analytica: Data Privacy (19 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: The revelation this weekend of a serious alleged privacy breach involving Facebook data is clearly very worrying. It is reported that a whistleblower told The Observer newspaper that Cambridge Analytica exploited the Facebook data of over 50 million people globally. In our increasingly digital world, it is essential that people can have confidence that their personal data will be protected....

Cambridge Analytica: Data Privacy (19 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: I start by paying tribute to the work of the Select Committee, as I have done from this Dispatch Box before. It is doing an incredibly important piece of work. Because of the sensitivities of this, in terms of its political nature and the impact on political campaigning, it is excellent that a cross-party group of MPs is leading work on this, and I pay tribute to Members on both sides of the...

Cambridge Analytica: Data Privacy (19 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: I add my praise for the Guardian journalists who have done the work published this weekend. I agree with the right hon. Gentleman on many of the issues he raises. It is best to proceed on this with the cross-party consensus that we have on many such areas. I am not sure about the argument that we have dragged our feet, given that this Government have brought forward the Data Protection Bill,...

Cambridge Analytica: Data Privacy (19 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: I have some sympathy with the argument my right hon. and learned Friend makes. A fine of 4% of global turnover is a significant one for an organisation for which data processing is only part of a broader business. Where data processing is the whole business, one could argue that it is less proportionate. We are therefore considering the Information Commissioner’s request. Of course,...

Cambridge Analytica: Data Privacy (19 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: I have answered the first part of the hon. Gentleman’s set of questions. I broadly agree with him that this is a serious and worrying incident. We need to ensure that the Bill that is before the House puts in place enforcement powers behind the ability to audit that the Information Commissioner will get from the Bill. On the questions about the Conservative party, as far as I understand...

Cambridge Analytica: Data Privacy (19 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: I have said that the wild west of digital companies that flout rules and think that the best thing to do is move fast and break things, without thought for the impact on democracy and society, is over. The Data Protection Bill is part of a suite of actions that we are taking to ensure that we have the freedoms that we cherish online, but not the freedom to harm others. That affects many...

Cambridge Analytica: Data Privacy (19 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: Of course we have been in contact with Facebook about that. It is very early stages in terms of the specific allegations that were made at the weekend, but this is part of a longer dialogue about ensuring that Facebook treats the problems with the seriousness that they deserve. The focus today is on Facebook, but in the autumn, we came to the House to discuss Uber’s attitude to data...

Cambridge Analytica: Data Privacy (19 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: There is no evidence yet of successful interference in a UK election or referendum, but we remain vigilant.

Cambridge Analytica: Data Privacy (19 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: Yes.

Cambridge Analytica: Data Privacy (19 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: Few Governments are doing more to get the rules right in this space. The Data Protection Bill has a full suite of data protection provisions, including the GDPR from European law, to give people power over their data and consent about how it is used. I recommend that the hon. Lady read the Bill and get on board. If she has specific improvements to suggest, we are willing, as we have been...

Cambridge Analytica: Data Privacy (19 Mar 2018)

Matthew Hancock: I agree with the premise of the hon. Gentleman’s statement—or question, Mr Speaker. I agree with him that the attitude of the social media giants has been, “Government should get out of the way, because we are doing things differently and better.” It may be a good thing for 95% of us that we are better connected and can use social media in positive ways, as many...
