Vince Cable, a British politician who was the former Leader of the Liberal Democrats, recently issued a public statement saying he was repeatedly assured by the intelligence community that the official dealing with China's Huawei was totally safe, and that China and 5G had "nothing to do with British national security."

He said that the ban would increase the cost of 5G deployment in the country by 9-29 percent over the next 10 years.
