Cambridge: MP Named Internet Hero

The MP for Cambridge has been named 'Internet Hero of The Year'.

Julian Huppert has received the award for his campaign work around online privacy and data security.

The competition is organised by The Internet Service Providers Association.

Judges felt that Julian is 'one of the few MPs who truly understands the internet'.

He was recognised for 'publicly leading the political opposition to the Communications Data Bill' after he served on the joint committee examining the proposals. 

The committee concluded that the proposals were not appropriate, and this led to the Bill being dropped by Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg. 

Julian said: "I am delighted to receive this award.

It is clear that people feel very strong about upholding internet security and data privacy and it is vital that we protect that privacy so that ordinary people can use the internet without fear of being watched."
