Written answers (Question to Foreign)

I have regular contact with my EU counterparts covering a broad range of issues. I have not been contacted directly by my EU colleagues on the use of 5G technology by this company. However, I attended the Foreign Affairs Council in Brussels on 18 March, where this topic was raised briefly during the course of a wide-ranging discussion on a variety of issues of mutual interest, including EU-China relations, Moldova and Yemen.
