James Cleverly questions Minister about public confidence in data-driven businesses

Following the Ministerial statement on the theft of the personal data of 57 million Uber customers and drivers, James Cleverly asks what the Government is doing to ensure the confidence of the British public in such data-driven market disrupters.

Market disrupters that not only rely on data but are driven by data will increasingly play an important part in the UK economy. What steps is the Department taking to ensure the confidence of the British public in such data-driven market disrupters?

Matt Hancock

The single best thing anybody in this House can do to try to improve our ability to respond to this sort of issue is to vote for the Data Protection Bill when it comes before this House.
