Jonathan Djanogly repeats calls for Huawei to fund replacement equipment in the event of security breach


28th January 2020

Responding to the Government announcement on 5G and Huawei involvement, Jonathan Djanogly urges the Government to ensure that any contract with Huawei requires Huawei to pay for any replacement should there be a breach of national security.

Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con)

Given what I have heard today, I accept the sense of the Government’s position. However, on drafting a contract with Huawei, would it not make sense, as far as the British public are concerned, that if there were to be a breach of national security, Huawei should pay for the replacement, not the British public?

Dominic Raab

I agree with the spirit with which my hon. Friend spoke. Of course, if there were that kind of breach, it would almost certainly be a criminal offence, not just a contractual issue. What I can reassure him is that the legislation will set out all the recourse that would be had against the operators.
