Request to Members of Parliament to include summons letter in the debate on 6 February

On 19 December 2019, Stop5GNL has sent a letter of summons to the Ministry of Economic Affairs in which it calls on the State to stop the process of rolling out 5G.

This summons letter will be on the agenda of the plenary debate of 6 February 2020 on possible espionage by Huawei in the Netherlands and the auctioning of 5G frequencies. The Parliamentary Standing Committee on the Ministry of Economic Affairs decided in the procedural meeting on 21 January 2020 that the Members of Parliament could include this letter in this debate.

In a letter dated 31 January 2020, the Stop5GNL Foundation urged the permanent committee members of the Ministry of Economic Affairs ann Climate and the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport to discuss the summons letter and to study the health risks associated with 5G. In view of the approaching auction, it is particularly urgent to stop the process of rolling out 5G, all the more so because we expect the roll-out of the new frequencies to be very far-reaching for people and the environment.

The debate is public. This means that as a listener you can be present in the public gallery. The debate can also be followed live on the Lower House’s website.
