Countering foreign disinformation – which seeks to subvert and undermine the UK’s democracy, prosperity, and security – is vital.

The Department for Science, Innovation and Technology holds overall responsibility for countering disinformation and is the convening department that coordinates cross-government capabilities.

The Home Office works closely with DSIT and others in the coordinated effort to protect the UK.

The National Security Bill - currently making its way through this House - will further strengthen our ability to counter hostile state threats.
