Focus of the session
The Chief Operating Officer of the Canadian marketing firm AggregateIQ (AIQ), Jeff Silvester, is questioned by the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee.
AIQ did a significant amount of work on behalf of Vote Leave during the EU Referendum, and is allegedly linked with the companies Cambridge Analytica and the SCL Group. These connections and other issues are explored with Mr Silvester during the session, who also recently gave evidence to a Canadian House of Commons Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics.
Alexander Nix of Cambridge Analytica has been summoned to appear before the Committee.
The Committee continues to investigate data sharing and misuse around Facebook, Cambridge Analytica and other connected companies, as part of its wider inquiry into Fake News.
