Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Viscount Rothermere (30 Maw 2017)

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: George Osborne (24 Maw 2017)

Ben Gummer: Holding answer received on 23 March 2017 It is a longstanding convention that former Ministers are allowed reasonable access to the papers that were issued to them when in office. However, such access is at the Government's discretion and is conditional on potential authors undertaking to comply with the Radcliffe principles. The detail of the Radcliffe principles can be found in...

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Cyber-security (22 Maw 2017)

Ben Gummer: Cyber-attacks are growing more frequent, sophisticated and damaging. The government transformation strategy will ensure that government protects all of its services and products from cybercrime, and will ensure that all systems are designed with cyber-security and appropriate privacy safeguards in place.

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Cyber-security (22 Maw 2017)

Ben Gummer: I am very grateful to the right hon. Gentleman for making that point. Central to what we are doing is protecting not only the information that government requires to be kept confidential, but, as importantly, the information that citizens require to be kept confidential. That is partly why gov.uk Verify has been designed so that it protects citizens’ data in the inquires that they make of...

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Cyber-security (22 Maw 2017)

Ben Gummer: My hon. Friend has doctors in high places. All I would say to him is that specific inquiries about NHS digital services should be directed to the Health Secretary, but I shall ensure that he receives a proper reply from him. As for the Government’s general strategy, our purpose is to make sure that we have the most secure government information systems anywhere in the world. That is what...

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Cyber-security (22 Maw 2017)

Ben Gummer: The Government are seeking to achieve precisely the latter of those things, which is why gov.uk Verify has been built as it has. It is very important that citizens have complete faith in the data held by government and feel able to interrogate data in the way that is open to them. We are not quite where I would like to be on this yet, but as we design digital services in the future I want to...

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Cyber-security (22 Maw 2017)

Ben Gummer: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for raising this important matter. I direct businesses to look at the cyber essentials pack on the National Cyber Security Centre website, which details the essentials of what businesses can do to protect themselves. The NCSC’s purpose is to ensure that businesses that work with government adhere to the same high standards of cyber-security that the...

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Government Efficiency Savings (22 Maw 2017)

Ben Gummer: The Government are conducting an efficiency review to deliver savings and embed an efficiency culture into government. The Chief Secretary and I are leading the review together. Cabinet Office functions provide support, expertise and assurance, helping Departments to work together to cut waste and inefficiency.

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Government Efficiency Savings (22 Maw 2017)

Ben Gummer: The House, especially those interested in plans, will be pleased to know that this is the first time in the history of Government plans that we have done a second iteration of a plan—that is an exciting point. We are aligning the plans with the efficiency review, which means that, amazingly, we are going to plan government with money at the same time.

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Government Efficiency Savings (22 Maw 2017)

Ben Gummer: The hon. Gentleman makes a serious point. The Infrastructure and Projects Authority was set up to assess infrastructure projects rigorously, which is why we have been able to reduce the number of overspends he correctly identifies. The complex transactions unit in my Department also assesses transactions before they happen to make sure that we are protecting the Government. I hope the big...

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Government Transparency (22 Maw 2017)

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Government Transparency (22 Maw 2017)

Ben Gummer: We must learn from each other, which is why we are members of the Open Government Partnership, which this country helped to set up. I have been to the OGP conference to learn from others, and we will continue to learn in that way, including from the OECD, the G20 and the International Aid Transparency Initiative.

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Government Transparency (22 Maw 2017)

Ben Gummer: I profoundly apologise to the hon. Lady if we have not responded in time. It is very important to me that we respond courteously and quickly to Members, and I shall chase up the matter immediately and make sure that she gets a proper response.

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Government Transparency (22 Maw 2017)

Ben Gummer: It is worth remembering that it was Margaret Thatcher who made it possible for local councils to conduct their hearings in public, which is something that we now take for granted. That is why we need to continue this if we are to reinforce the relationship between citizens and the public bodies that serve them.

Cabinet Office and the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster: Government Transparency (22 Maw 2017)

Ben Gummer: It sounds entirely transparent to me. The Secretary of State is on the Bench. He has heard the question and no doubt he will want to be caught afterwards to discuss it further. I know that he has almost daily discussions with the Chancellor about the interests of Scotland, which is why he was able to secure an additional £350 million for Scotland in the Budget. That shows the advantages of...
