Government need to get serious about protecting young people

Yesterday MPs debated the Government's Digital Economy Bill. Amongst other things this Bill will require pornographic websites to have proper age verification gateways to prevent under-18s from accessing them.

 

This is a great aim. Easy access to online pornography is having a damaging effect on young people's views of sex, relationships and consent. The problem is that the proposals in this Bill lack the clout they need to make providers of online pornography sit up and take notice.
