Nothing short of legislation will reassure families that their loved ones are safe online – Tracy Brabin

Tracy Brabin MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, commenting on the Government’s initial response to the Online Harms White Paper consultation, said:

“It’s shameful that nearly a year after the White Paper, three years after its promise to legislate on online harms, and more than a decade after the first tragic social media suicides were reported, all the Government has to show us is an ‘initial consultation response.’

“Today’s proposals are long overdue, and nothing short of legislation will reassure families that their loved ones are safe online.”
