Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Matthew Hancock: A point that I hope will reassure the right hon. Gentleman is that EU jurisprudence will be brought into UK law through the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill, although EU jurisdiction will no longer continue.

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Matthew Hancock: This is an incredibly important point, so I am grateful to the right hon. Gentleman for allowing me to intervene. The right is there: it is in the GDPR, which will be brought into UK law through the Bill.

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Matthew Hancock: The negotiation of the EU’s future relationship with the UK is not some sort of informal approach; it is a very formal set of talks. We hope that it will lead to a good deal, which we hope will include this area. That is exactly what I meant.

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Matthew Hancock: The hon. Gentleman is quite right. Of course, Gibraltar is part of the UK family. I should have been clearer about that, but I am glad that we have cleared that up.

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Matthew Hancock: Just on a point of English language, it is clearly not a truth universally acknowledged, because I do not acknowledge it.

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Matthew Hancock: I beg to move, That this House has considered Exiting the European Union and Data Protection. The digital revolution through which we are living is bringing about the fastest pace of change that any generation has ever seen. With advances in technology accelerating, it is likely that this current pace of change will be the slowest that any of us will experience probably for the rest of our...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Matthew Hancock: I pay tribute to the right hon. Gentleman’s extensive understanding of these issues, not only from his time as a Minister but since. His understanding is so good that he has correctly anticipated the next page of my speech. That is exactly what we are seeking, because it is strongly in the mutual interests of the UK and the rest of the EU that such an arrangement is put in place. Having...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Matthew Hancock: Yes, of course. Our future relationship with the EU will be bespoke. We want to make sure that the flow of data is unhindered, so we effectively seek an adequacy deal, but that is currently scheduled to be negotiated as part of the future relationship. Whether it is enacted through the formal EU mechanism of an adequacy deal or as part of the negotiation is, in a sense, immaterial. What...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Matthew Hancock: That is our objective in terms of the goal, but I have one difference with the premise of the hon. Gentleman’s question. He said that our leaving the EU will make things more difficult, but that is not necessarily so, because we seek a relationship that, in terms of the unhindered flow of data, is as high quality as the one we have now. We of course need to secure that as part of the...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Matthew Hancock: I agree wholeheartedly and strongly with my hon. Friend, who is an expert in these matters, having just arrived in the House from the European Parliament, where she was a rapporteur on some of the key committees that made a number of the important decisions in this policy area. She is absolutely right. The unhindered flow of data will take place between two regimes that are harmonised,...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Matthew Hancock: What it means is that the arrangements are harmonised right now. Should the Data Protection Bill become an Act, as I sincerely hope it will—it does have cross-party support—our existing arrangements at the point of exit will be harmonised. What happens after that will depend on the negotiation of our future relationship, with the UK being sovereign. The point is to ensure that the...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Matthew Hancock: I am sure that the Under-Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, my hon. Friend the Member for Worcester (Mr Walker), will have heard that point—this is a bit like a return to business questions from earlier. Parliamentary procedure is a matter for that Bill, but the hon. Gentleman has made his case. It is very important that the element of the GDPR that is directly...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Matthew Hancock: Gibraltar is, and will continue to be, part of the United Kingdom. The Under-Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union leads on issues relating to Gibraltar. He will have heard those concerns and will be able to respond to them in detail. In a sense, all this shows why it is so important to get this agreement right.

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Matthew Hancock: I am glad that I gave the right hon. Gentleman the opportunity to do so. A strong relationship on data is beneficial to citizens as it will reassure them that their personal data is subject to robust protection. Maintaining the flow is also important. Once we have left the EU, we will continue to play a leading global role in the development and promotion of appropriate data protection...

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Matthew Hancock: I thought that the right hon. Gentleman might raise that. I understand his amendment and the reason behind it, which is to ensure that what we are trying to achieve is achieved. However, the removal of the charter from UK law should not affect the substantive rights of individuals when their data is processed, because the charter is not the source of the rights contained within it. The...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Public Service Broadcasting Contestable Fund (14 Sep 2017)

Matthew Hancock: As part of the BBC charter review, the first part of which took place under my right hon. Friend’s wise leadership, the Government committed to establish a pilot for a new contestable fund. The Government’s consultation closed earlier this year, and we will publish the response and the next steps in due course.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Public Service Broadcasting Contestable Fund (14 Sep 2017)

Matthew Hancock: Yes, I agree with everything my right hon. Friend said, and I can confirm that that pilot will be going ahead.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Public Service Broadcasting Contestable Fund (14 Sep 2017)

Matthew Hancock: I normally think the hon. Gentleman is sensible, but today he seems to have avoided that. The contestable fund is about ensuring that we have a great diversity of success in broadcasting in our nation. As for the “Today” programme, I thought Nick Robinson’s broadcasts from Silicon Valley yesterday were superb. They were all about the interesting changes that are going on in...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (14 Sep 2017)

Matthew Hancock: Yes, I can. More than 90% of homes and businesses in Wealden now have access to superfast broadband, and 16,000 homes and businesses get that because of the Government’s support for the roll-out. We recognise that that leaves just under 10% without it, which can be incredibly frustrating, so we are bringing in a universal service obligation. At the weekend, we announced a further amount...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (14 Sep 2017)

Matthew Hancock: The Data Protection Bill, which we published in the other place today, is about giving citizens more power over their data while ensuring that data can be used innovatively and effectively. It also introduces new powers to protect minors and to allow people to request the deletion of their data on social media sites at the age of 18, ensuring that they are more in control of their online data.
