Stories involving Sajid Javid

Javid secures £5bn phone coverage deal

The Government has agreed a £5bn deal with mobile phone companies to improve coverage.

Culture Secretary Sajid Javid has secured an Ofcom-registered deal with EE, O2, Three and Vodafone to ensure 90% of the UK has basic coverage by 2017, but has dropped earlier plans to allow customers to roam between networks after the Home Secretary warned it may aid criminals.

“This legally binding agreement will give the UK the world-class mobile phone coverage it needs and deserves,” he said.


Tories: Labour benefits cap could rise to £54k

Labour's plans to reform the benefits cap could see it rise to up to £54,000, Sajid Javid will say today.

The Culture Secretary is due to say that Labour will be prepared to "slap taxpayers in the face" with welfare changes by altering the Tory's £26,000 benefits cap. The Tories say this is down to including some rents in benefits in more expensive parts of London, such as Kensington and Chelsea. Labour have dismissed the claims and said housing benefit is already included in their calculations.

Mr Javid told the Sun: "Labour still stand for dependency and benefits as a lfestyle choice. We will do anything we can to prevent Labour turning the clock back."


Javid criticises ‘right to be forgotten’

The so-called ‘right to be forgotten’ represents “censorship by the back door”, the Culture Secretary has said.

In an address to the Society of Editors, Sajid Javid said the European Court of Justice ruling, which allows people to request that search engines remove links to web pages with details of their activities, was allowing terrorists and criminals were abusing the ruling to “airbrush” information about them from the internet.


Nick Clegg and David Cameron have allowed for Liberal Democrat and Conservative MPs to work together on a joint policy prospectus for the coalition in the second half of this parliament.
