MPs Who Support Extra Safeguards for Children on the Internet 

John Healey MP for Wentworth & Dearne said “Our children are our most valuable asset but we must be aware that they are also some of the most vulnerable members of society. Protecting our children against the fear of crime and from becoming victims of crime must be a priority”.

Claire Perry MP for Devizes Constituency, who chaired the Parliamentary Inquiry into Online Child Protection has been an avid supporter of further enhanced protections for children said "I am delighted that the Prime Minister is once again showing his commitment to protecting our children online. Our Report made a number of key recommendations, including asking the Government to lead a formal consultation into Opt-In filtering of adult content and the whole team is really pleased that our work has paid off. We know that families across Britain will welcome this news."

Jenny Chapman MP for Darlington (Shadow Justice Minister) has recently announced she is firmly backing the system that would block adults from accessing sexual content online unless they asked their internet provider to allow it. She recently commented in an article in the Daily Mail that "Children are regularly seeing pornography and sometimes being groomed for sex. Righting these wrongs is not an attack on civil liberties. Adults will still have the choice to access material they want to see".

Helen Goodman MP for Bishop Auckland (Shadow Media Minister) who termed the access to pornography as “a modern-day form of pollution. In a civilised society we must also protect our children. What we want to see is the same balance of rights and responsibilities as we have in the real world.”

Baroness Howe of Idlicote  introduced her Online Safety Private Members Bill to the House of Lords on 10 May. It requires those companies that supply internet services – whether at home or on a mobile device – to filter pornographic content, unless an adult user specifically asks for access to such content. This mechanism is called an ‘opt-in’ system. The measure is intended to help parents bring up their children in an internet-enabled age without them being able to access, whether purposefully or by accident, such content. It would also allow those adults who do not want to access pornography, to surf the net more safely.
