    after security concerns were raised once more over the weekend about allowing Chinese phone firm Huawei to supply “non-core” parts of the UK's high-speed 5G networks, the company has responded today.

    "We are a private company which has supplied 3G, 4G and broadband equipment to the UK's telecommunications companies for 15 years," it pointed out.

    It said two UK parliamentary committees concluded "there is no technical reason to ban us" from supplying 5G equipment.

    "And now Andrew Parker, the Head of MI5, says he has 'no reason to think' that the UK's intelligence-sharing relationship with the US would be hit if Britian continued to use Huawei technology."

    It added that it was confident the government will "take a decision based on evidence - not unsubstantiated allegation."

  4. UK will 'hold the line' on chicken in US trade negotiations

    Chlorine-washed chicken and hormone-treated beef will not be allowed into the UK under any trade deal with the US, the BBC has learned.

    Environment secretary Theresa Villiers told presenter Countryfile presenter Tom Heap that the current EU ban on such imports will be carried over into UK legislation following Brexit.

    Ms Villiers said: “We will not be importing chlorinated-chicken. We will not be importing hormone-treated beef. Both of those are illegal under EU law, which we are importing into our domestic system.

    “There are legal barriers to their import and those are going to stay in place.”

    Ms Villiers said the Government would “hold the line” in any trade negotiations with the US and would “defend our national interests and our values, including our high standards of animal welfare”.

  5. US Tariffs on French goods would 'hurt' US workers

    A hearing started earlier on Tuesday in Washington over the US plan to impose retaliatory tariffs on $2.4bn (£1.8bn) of French goods over the country's "digital services tax".

    The proposed US tariffs would hit imports of champagne, handbags and other French luxury goods. The US moved to impose the tax after it found the French digital tax would harm US technology companies.

    But according to some experts, it's not French companies which will suffer.
