William Wragg MP Statement

 

Last year, William Wragg MP wrote letters to the then Secretary of State for Digital,
Culture, Media and Sport, Rt Hon Jeremy Wright MP, and to the Secretary of State for
Health and Social Care, Rt Hon Matt Hancock MP, regarding the deployment of 5G. In the letters Mr Wragg stated:

‘I therefore ask that you provide independent, peer reviewed, indubitable and definitive evidence that the technology is safe and poses no risk to human health. This evidence must look at both the effect of short term and long term cumulative effects on people, the impacts of living close to antennae sites and the general background level that a national network will bring. If such evidence does not exist that the Government commission research into it as a matter of urgency. 5G technology should not be rolled out until we can be sure that it is safe, and in the absence of such evidence I would not support its further development, until the health effects have been fully established.’
