UK's Lidington: Huawei leak inquiry needed to ensure government integrity

LONDON, May 2 (Reuters) - The British government’s inquiry into the disclosure of secret information relating to Chinese telecoms company Huawei was needed to ensure the integrity of the National Security Council, cabinet office minister David Lidington said on Thursday.

“The leak investigation into the disclosure of information about 5G was constituted in order to ensure that the integrity of the NSC in general is upheld and, vitally, participants in NSC meeting can continue to hold full confidence in its operation and the confidentiality of its proceedings,” Lidington told parliament.
