Nick will be the guest of Cambridge MP David Howarth and the city's Liberal Democrats.

His visit begins at the Cambridge Computer Lab where he will meet Professor Ross Anderson, an expert in security engineering.

There will be a practical demonstration of the ease at which personal data can be accessed by fraudsters. Nick Clegg and Prof. Anderson will also discuss new Liberal Democrat policy for data protection, ahead of Government plans to implement a national identity card database.

Nick will go on to The Cavendish Lab to meet Professor Sir Richard Friend and Professor David MacKay to discuss climate change and energy.

Commenting on the visit, Nick said: "I'm very much looking forward to visiting Cambridge later this week. As well listening to people in Cambridge about issues ranging from the economy to the protection of their personal data, I will get a chance to see first hand the excellent work David Howarth does campaigning for the city."

Mr Howarth said: "I am delighted that Nick has taken time out of his busy schedule to come and meet some of the people that are helping to put Cambridge on the map.

"This is an opportunity to talk to the people who are working to find solutions to the major issues that affect us all."
