I understand my hon. Friend’s point. Abuse and intimidation are of course covered in this White Paper, and it is important that online platforms do what they can to minimise that kind of activity.

Where they are or may be criminal offences, powers already exist to seek to identify those who may be responsible, and we should be making full use of them.
