China has targeted a group of senior politicians in Westminster with cyber attacks as part of a new wave of state-backed interference aimed at undermining British democracy, The Sunday Times has reported. Oliver Dowden, the deputy prime minister, is expected to tell parliament on Monday that Beijing is behind a series of cyber attacks against parliamentarians and peers. Due to this growing threat, a small group of politicians have been summoned to a briefing by Parliament’s head of security, Alison Giles. Those named are former Conservative leader Sir Ian Duncan Smith, former Conservative education minister Tim Loughton, Scottish National Party MP Stewart McDonald, and a minor party member, Lord Alton of Liverpool. All four are members of the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China (IPAC), an international group of cross-party lawmakers working to achieve reforms in how democratic countries approach China.
