Focus of the session

MPs use the opportunity to question Mr. Schroepfer about Facebook's business practices, including their policies on the privacy and protection of users' data and their relationship with Cambridge Analytica and associated companies.

Although Mr Schroepfer is the most senior official from Facebook ever to appear before a UK Committee, the company have so far declined to send their CEO Mark Zuckerberg despite repeated requests from Chair of the Committee Damian Collins MP.
