The Prime Minister has banned the Chinese tech firm from involvement in the UK’s 5G network in the latest government U-turn.
Boris Johnson has opted to grant Chinese technology firm Huawei a limited role in providing the UK’s 5G network, despite security fears.
Former Tory MP Nick de Bois has claimed that the Prime Minister has used the Huawei leak to her advantage.
Labour’s deputy leader criticised the "brutal" dismissal of Gavin Williamson over the Huawei leak.
Colonel Bob Stewart has said that allow Chinese company Huawei to bid for contracts for the new 5G network could make the UK “vulnerable to cyber-attack”.
Sir Gerald Howarth, a former defence minister, has said that the prime minister was more “responsible for damaging national security” than Gavin Williamson who was sacked on Wednesday evening.
The cabinet minister was sacked over "compelling evidence" that he was responsible for leaking details from a National Security Council meeting to a newspaper.
The former Head of the National Counter Terrorism Security Office has said that the 5G network will be “extremely important to run everything”.
The former defence secretary said he agreed with the cabinet's "fierce" reaction to a leak of secret discussions by the UK's top national security body.
Theorist David Icke has said that the implementation of a 5G network could have “catastrophic effects on human health”.
