“Opt-in” filter for internet service providers

Volume 550: debated on Tuesday 18 September 2012

The Petition of a local women’s group in Wiltshire,

Declares that the Petitioners regard the accessibility of adult and pornographic material on the internet as having harmful effects on young people, both girls and boys; notes that a similar petition has been signed by seventeen people; further notes the campaign of the Member of Parliament for Devizes to require internet service providers to introduce an “opt-in” filter for accessing adult material online, and declares the Petitioners’ support for this campaign.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to encourage internet service providers to have an “opt-in” filter to prevent children accessing adult or pornographic material on the internet.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
