Former BT CEO to lead task force that will advise on diversifying the nation's telecoms supply chain

Yet Another Hierachial Anonynmous Coward

30 years too late

If the government are suddenly worried about this, perhaps they shouldn't have been so willing to standby and watch the likes of Plessey, GEC, Racal, Ferranti, Marconi, etc., go down the tubes. We used to develop and make our own telecomms kit in the UK AND export the stuff around the world! Almost unbelievable, I know.

The perils of short-termism of previous governments comes back to bite on the arse.
