Will Sunak's cabinet reshuffle energise UK tech regulation?

First name

Top in Tech is now weekly! In each episode, we'll be covering the week's biggest tech policy story with an expert from our GC team. We'll also continue to host thought leaders and industry experts for monthly in-depth conversations about the future of tech regulation.

This week, Senior Practice Director Conan D'Arcy is joined by Senior Associate Poppy Woodcock to unpack UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak's decision to create a standalone science, innovation and technology department as part of a broader government restructure. Critics have dismissed the reforms as technocratic meddling, but could this more focused technology department energise the UK's tech regulation efforts?

Conan and Poppy discuss how the restructuring will impact existing policy proposals, the Tory ministers who will shape the new departments, and how Labour may respond both in their shadow cabinet and in a potential future government.
