The UK Government wants to be a global leader in 5G and the rollout has already begun in many areas. However, there are concerns about the security of 5G, including the use of equipment in networks supplied by foreign companies. This inquiry looks at these security issues.
The Government announced restrictions in January on high-risk vendors followed by stricter rules announced in July, with Huawei to be removed from the UK's 5G network by 2027.
