Back doors are bad news - not least because they leave people open to hacks

Again, candidly, I think awareness is low. I spent most of my career before parliament in the tech industry so I often find parliament a frustrating place to debate this. Its hard enough to get things like a mobile signal in the office! But: the answer is a proper industrial strategy with investment for the creative industries with the right kind of leadership that allows Govt to click in support where needed

Actually, that's what we're trying to pin down with our Peoples' Plan (www.peoplesplan.co.uk). I don't think it makes sense for me to cook up a plan in a room in Westminster. We want to draw together the best ideas in the world. I've just spent a couple of days for instance in Estonia, which has used eGovernment and a public e-ID scheme to transform the digital economy. We could learn an awful lot from this.
