Huawei faces UK ban

“The NCSC’s re-evaluation of the risk Huawei poses as a supplier matches the strength of feeling in the parliamentary party and, from China Research Group (CRG) polling, across the whole country”

Tom Tugendhat

Tom Tugendhat, Conservative MP and chair of the CRG and the UK parliament’s foreign affairs committee, responds to news in the Sunday Times that Britain’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has concluded Huawei’s equipment is not secure and faces supply problems because of US bans. Its recommendation could see Huawei equipment removed from British 5G networks by 2026 and would be a major volte face for Boris Johnson’s government.
