The British tech industry has issued a stark warning to leading Brexiteer ministers that diverging from EU data protection standards after Brexit will “undermine” the UK’s status as Europe’s leading tech hub.

In an open letter to Liam Fox, the International Trade Secretary, Julian David, the chief executive of the industry’s leading lobby group, said that remaining closely aligned with the EU would not stop the UK seeking trade deals after Brexit.

“Diverging from EU data protection rules in domestic law post-Brexit would undermine this opportunity,” wrote Mr David, of TechUK, which represents nearly 1,000 UK tech firms, including several FTSE 100 companies.
