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.”

The minister says we should be “well aware of what Russia tries to do” and guard against it.
