Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Electoral System: Overseas Interference

Mike Wood: What action are the Government taking to seek a range of views on potential measures to secure our voting system from overseas interference?

 

Chloe Smith The Parliamentary Secretary, Cabinet Office, Assistant Whip

We are doing that in a number of ways. I would be very happy to have a longer conversation with my hon. Friend on this subject. Work goes on across the Government to look at these matters, including with my right hon. and hon. Friends in the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and in the Home Office. We, collectively, will ensure that we seek those views.
