Conor McGinn – 2020 Comments on Sunburst Cyber Attack

The comments made by Conor McGinn, the Shadow Security Minister, on 18 December 2020.

This cyberattack on one of our closest allies is unprecedented in its scale and duration, and we need urgent clarity from the Government about whether there has been any direct or associated impact on Britain’s defence, security or economic interests.

It’s vital that the UK is prepared to repel any such attacks here and take the appropriate measures to protect us and our allies from this hostile activity.

With the National Security Adviser focused on negotiations with the EU, Ministers must reassure the British public that our national security and this grave situation is receiving the full attention it merits.
