Video Games

Volume 469: debated on Monday 10 December 2007

20. To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport if he will review the classification system of video games with a view to bringing forward proposals for its improvement. (172216)

Dr. Tanya Byron is currently conducting a review into children's access to potentially harmful or inappropriate content on the internet and in video games.

This review will assess the effectiveness and adequacy of existing measures in place and make recommendations for improvements or additional action.

Consideration of any need to review the existing classification system will await Dr. Byron's recommendations, which are expected in March next year. We would not want to prejudge those recommendations.
