I congratulate my hon. Friend Matt Warman on securing the debate. I suspect he will not speak to such a full Chamber for much of his first term in Parliament. The attendance today reflects the importance attached to this issue by all hon. Members.

It may not have escaped my hon. Friend’s notice that I do not have the most rural of constituencies, but there are also significant issues with superfast broadband in urban areas. Meg Hillier is well aware of that, as it is something we addressed in the last Parliament.
