David Lidington: The Government has said previously that we have not seen evidence of successful foreign interference in UK elections and we take any allegations of interference in UK democratic processes by a foreign government extremely seriously.

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Cabinet Office: Disclosure of Information (25 Mar 2019)

We are actively monitoring to identify and understand disinformation campaigns, and...
