16 December 2020

The Defence Sub-Committee on the Security of 5G publishes the Government’s response to its report. In this Special Report, the Government responds to the recommendations of the Sub-Committee report. The report’s conclusions focused on the technical and geopolitical considerations of 5G and the Government’s response responds positively to the recommendations of the Committee.

Chair of the Defence Committee, Tobias Ellwood MP, said:

"I am delighted that the Government has taken onboard many of the recommendations made by our Sub-Committee.

The debate around the integration of new technology is ongoing and I hope that this report has helped to move the discourse around technology and security forward. Advances in technology often outpace the conversation around its security, and this is an area that the Defence Committee will continue to monitor."
