After Brexit, UK must have power to bring Google to heel

Tom Watson MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, commenting on Google’s €4.3bn anti-trust fine, said:

“Google’s unacceptable anti-competition policies have been found out once again.  

“The sharp teeth of the EU commission are proving themselves entirely necessary to rein in the power of the tech oligopolies.

“Once we leave the EU the UK must have the power to bring these companies to heel.”
