Today the DCMS Committee held its final evidence session on the Misinformation and Trusted Voices inquiry. We heard from Paul Scully (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology), Cathy Alexander (Deputy Director of Research Talent and European Programmes), and Talitha Rowland (Deputy Director of Security and Counter Disinformation).
The evidence session aimed to scrutinise Government work around misinformation and disinformation as well as exploring the Government’s perspective on some of the points raised during the course of the inquiry.
Questions touched upon different aspects of misinformation, including the changes Government has made in how it communicates with the public as a result of the pandemic and the role of Government in helping the public find trusted information.
