Helen Goodman MP, Labour’s Shadow Media Minister, commenting on today’s summit on internet safety, said:

“After three years this Tory-led Government has talked a lot but failed to take action to keep children safe online. 

“The problems of people viewing child abuse online and children seeing inappropriate material are growing, but the Government have not been clear on what they are seeking from the industry.

“If this Government was serious about taking action they should have supported Labour’s vote last week to back legislation to require ISPs to put filters on as the default, to introduce an effective age verification system and to put up splash warnings before people enter sites.”
