Facebook and Twitter have three weeks to hand over details of Russian interference in Brexit ballot

Chairman of the DCMS select committee Damian Collins says the social media giants have until 18 January to hand over the information after previously expressing how unhappy he was at the "inadequate" data that had been given to them so far.

Collins described as "inadequate" the move by the companies to only hand over advertising spending information, which they had already given the Electoral Commission.
