Huawei leak shows Government incapable of acting in public interest – Jon Trickett

Jon Trickett MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, responding to calls for an inquiry into leaks from a meeting of the National Security Council discussing Huawei, said:

“This Tory Government has once again proved incapable of coming together to protect the public interest.

“Critical issues of national security should be handled with utmost care, not used as political ammunition in a Tory Party civil war.

“The Government should launch a full investigation to get to the bottom of these leaks, otherwise it risks further extinguishing what little authority it has left.”
