Written Ministerial Statements — Cabinet Office: National Security and Investment Act - statement for the purposes of section 3 (21 Mai 2024)

Oliver Dowden: On 18 April I published the Government’s response to the National Security and Investment (NSI) Call for Evidence, which sought feedback from stakeholders on how the Government can increase understanding of the NSI Act and the risks it seeks to address. As part of the Government’s response, I committed to publishing an updated section 3 statement setting out the factors I expect to take...

Cabinet Office: Cyber Threats to Public Institutions and Services (25 Ebr 2024)

Oliver Dowden: The cyber threat facing the United Kingdom is intensifying. State and non-state actors have targeted our critical national infrastructure, our businesses and even our democratic institutions. The Government have introduced a new national cyber strategy, which takes a whole-of-society approach. We have set out high standards of cyber-protection for our critical industries and, with the help of...

Cabinet Office: Cyber Threats to Public Institutions and Services (25 Ebr 2024)

Oliver Dowden: The hon. Gentleman is absolutely right to raise this issue. We have tremendous strengths in national cyber-security, and there are many relevant institutions around the country. I have visited universities in Wales that are churning out brilliant graduates. We need to do more at secondary school level to encourage more children to get involved in cyber-security, because the demand is only...

Cabinet Office: Cyber Threats to Public Institutions and Services (25 Ebr 2024)

Oliver Dowden: This is an important issue, which is why we established the National Cyber Security Centre. It brings together Government Communications Headquarters expertise with that of the Cabinet Office, the Foreign Office and others. Through the National Cyber Security Centre, we work with the House authorities and others to make sure that they have sufficient and appropriate advice, but also to advise...

Cabinet Office: Cyber Threats to Public Institutions and Services (25 Ebr 2024)

Oliver Dowden: Specifically in relation to the hon. Gentleman’s local authority, I have been briefed by the National Cyber Security Centre on that incident. He is totally right to say it is a significant and serious incident, and we are working on remediation through the National Cyber Security Centre. To prevent this type of attack from happening in the first place, we invested £2.6 billion in the...

Cabinet Office: National Security (25 Ebr 2024)

Oliver Dowden: Protecting national security is the Government’s first duty. On Tuesday, the Prime Minister announced a fully funded plan to increase our defence spending by £75 billion over the next six years. As part of this uplift, we will bring forward a national defence and resilience plan, building on the resilience framework and integrated review to respond to the evolving threats we face. We are...

Cabinet Office: National Security (25 Ebr 2024)

Oliver Dowden: I totally disagree with the hon. Gentleman’s characterisation. We dealt explicitly with this in both the integrated review and the integrated review refresh, which set out a co-ordinated approach and are clear about the threats we face from hostile states—Russia, North Korea, Iran and indeed China. We are very clear about the threats China poses to our economic security and our democratic...

Cabinet Office: National Security (25 Ebr 2024)

Oliver Dowden: I have considerable concerns about deepfakes being used in the upcoming elections. We have seen hack and leak being used as a tactic by hostile states in previous elections, and we have to take into account deepfake capabilities, particularly enhanced by artificial intelligence. That is why we are developing our strategy through the Defending Democracy Taskforce and undertaking exercises...

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (25 Ebr 2024)

Oliver Dowden: The Cabinet Office continues to play a central co-ordinating role in protecting our national and economic security. Last week, we published the response to the call for evidence on the National Security and Investment Act 2021, and I set out the steps we will take to fine-tune that system, including honing our approach to export controls, outward investment and providing more support to...

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (25 Ebr 2024)

Oliver Dowden: I am afraid that I completely disagree with the hon. Lady about having an elected second Chamber. This is the democratic Chamber for our nation. It is the principal voice of the nation. We do not need a second Chamber in conflict with this one, further burdening and complexing legislative processes.

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (25 Ebr 2024)

Oliver Dowden: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for his question. I know that he has also written to me regarding that topic. I can assure him that we will be working with the National Cyber Security Centre and the National Security Secretariat to ensure that full checks and measures are put in place to prevent such abuse from occurring. The right hon. Gentleman referred to his role as general election...

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (25 Ebr 2024)

Oliver Dowden: The right hon. Gentleman has been around this place long enough to know that he is delivering a non-answer on Labour’s support for defence spending. The whole House will have noted that, although he raises an important issue in respect of prepositioning. He will appreciate that there are limits to what I can say from the Dispatch Box given that some of this relates to high-side...

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (25 Ebr 2024)

Oliver Dowden: It is an important question. We are doing exactly that. Extreme heat is something that we have to increasingly plan against. That is why last year, for the first time, we introduced an alert system for extreme heat that matches the alert system for extreme cold. I disagree, though, with the Mayor of London that the way to deal with this is to start imposing 20 mph speed limits everywhere and...

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (25 Ebr 2024)

Oliver Dowden: As the hon. Gentleman will know, shortly before taking office the Foreign Secretary not only had all his interests properly reviewed by the propriety and ethics team in my Department, but went through them with the independent adviser on ministers’ interests. The independent adviser set out all relevant interests, and those have been published, so the information is transparently out there...

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (25 Ebr 2024)

Oliver Dowden: As the hon. Gentleman will know, any criminal allegations are properly a matter for the courts, and he would not expect a Minister to comment on them from this Dispatch Box. If he wishes to write to me in respect of the further allegations he makes, I will be happy to take them up myself or with ministerial colleagues.

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (25 Ebr 2024)

Oliver Dowden: That is a good question; it is something the Government continue to keep open and under review. The argument against doing so is that it could discourage companies that are subject to ransomware attacks from reporting them, for example to the National Cyber Security Centre. Those reports help us to gather intelligence on the nature of those threats and to work with victims to resolve them. It...

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (25 Ebr 2024)

Oliver Dowden: The Labour party keep on pushing on this point, but I refer the hon. Gentleman to the latest list of ministerial interests, which was published in December and provides details of Minister’s interests, including those of the Foreign Secretary, that are judged by the independent adviser to be relevant, or could be perceived to be relevant, to their ministerial roles. All of it is there in...

Cabinet Office: Topical Questions (25 Ebr 2024)

Oliver Dowden: It may have escaped the hon. Gentleman’s attention, but Russia has invaded Ukraine and Iran’s proxies are attacking our allies in the middle east. That demands a response from the Government, and it has been provided by the Prime Minister. It is very notable that the Labour party is failing to match that commitment.

Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Ebr 2024)

Oliver Dowden: Mr Speaker, I have been asked to reply. I know that Members across the House will wish to join me in offering condolences to the family and friends of Lord Frank Field. He was an outstanding parliamentarian who worked tirelessly to make society a better place. My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister is in Berlin. He has announced the biggest strengthening of our defence in a generation. I am...

Prime Minister: Engagements (24 Ebr 2024)

Oliver Dowden: Mr Speaker, there is not much that I can add to that. [Laughter.] The hon. Member has, as ever, proved what an excellent campaigner he is for his constituents. He highlights the same problems with Labour councils across the country, raising taxes and letting services fall into disrepair. Of course he is totally right to be holding rogue landlords to account.
