Labour’s Jeff Smith asks about foreign influence in elections, calling for new rules on online political advertising.
Cabinet Office Minister Chloe Smith tells him: “Although we have not seen any evidence of foreign interference in UK elections we are not complacent.”
One way to lessen foreign influence in UK politics is for MPs not to go on Sputnik or Russia Today, says Lib Dem Tom Brake.
The minister says we should be “well aware of what Russia tries to do” and guard against it.
