Huawei has come under scrutiny by U.S. allies concerned its equipment could be used by Chinese intelligence.

The letter comes after Lamb, who leads the Science and Technology Committee, wrote to senior ministers and Huawei executives to raise concerns about the Chinese firm.

Huawei's office building at its research and development centre at Dongguan in south China's Guangdong province.

'Modern communications networks are complex systems that keep evolving in new and innovative ways.

'It is a complicated and involved process and will take at least three to five years to see tangible results.

Huawei, the world's biggest telecoms equipment maker, is facing global scrutiny over its ties with the Chinese government and allegations that Beijing could use its technology for spying, which Huawei denies.

Pressure has been growing on Huawei in Britain, one of its most important markets in Europe, since a government report in July previous year found that technical and supply-chain issues with the company's equipment had exposed national telecom networks to new security risks.

The group had warned that Huawei's software had "shortcomings" that meant it could not rule out potential security risks to the networks of British phone companies and other critical infrastructure.

The company also denied claims it could be compelled to assist Chinese national intelligence work using information gathered from the UK.

"Huawei has never and will never use UK-based hardware, software, or information gathered in the United Kingdom or anywhere else globally, to assist other countries in gathering intelligence". We would not do this in any country, ' Mr Ding said.

July's report identified what it called technical problems which limited security researchers' ability to check internal product codes and concerns about the security of third-party components from a US supplier. We choose to ensure security'.

Should the ban on Chinese networking hardware go into full effect, the statement indicates that there will be great pressure on Europe to follow suit in avoiding the use of Chinese cellular equipment.

The United States wants to steer people away from Huawei towards Western products because of its concerns over the security of the Chinese company's technology, the U.S. envoy to the European Union said last week.
