On Wednesday 2nd September 2020, WA were delighted to welcome Damian Collins MP for a discussion examining the future of UK digital policy.
Damian Collins, former chair of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sports Select Committee is the Conservative MP for Folkstone and Hythe. Collins has long been a champion of tackling “fake news” and previously led on the committee’s investigation into online harms and misinformation. During his four years as Chair of the Digital, Culture, Media and Sports Committee, Collins scrutinised government and regulators as they developed plans for the UK’s full-fibre future and the rapid accelerations of these plans in 2019.
Chaired by Marc Woolfson, WA’s Director, the conversation explores some of the regulatory challenges and key events that lay ahead of the industry, on issues ranging from the UK’s digital infrastructure, our online economy and the emerging policy trends after Covid-19.
WA’s Peter Jones, Associate Director and Head of Infrastructure also joined the discussion to provide insights on how the industry can support the government to deliver on its commitments on digital connectivity, online harms and digital innovation.
