Online Safety Inquiry - Safermedia, together with four other charities arranged for a group of young people to meet the Culture, Media and Sport Committee to give their first hand experiences of how the online world impacts them eg via bullying, social media, pornography (January 2014)

    The Inquiry Report was publiished in March

Pornography websites which do not prevent children accessing them should be prosecuted, a report by a committee of MPs has said.

Publishing adult material online which is “readily available to children” could be against the law, the report warned.

The Culture, Media and Sport Committee’s report, entitled ‘Online safety’, said there is “scope for greater enforcement in this area”.
