GCHQ director Jeremy Fleming will give a rare speech on Monday emphasising the need for better cyber-security practices in the telecoms industry.

In December, MI6 chief Alex Younger raised questions over China's role in the UK tech sector, and a recent report from the Royal United Services Institute said it would be "naive" and "irresponsible" to allow Huawei access.

Until a few years ago, China was called the workbench of the US and Europe. It looks like nobody back then even considered the idea that the Chinese will simply learn what they were taught.
