Online Pornography (Commercial Basis) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Regret

– in the House of Lords at 7:04 pm on 11th December 2018.

Alert me about debates like this

Tabled by Lord Stevenson of Balmacara

That this House regrets that the draft Online Pornography (Commercial Basis) Regulations 2018 and the draft Guidance on Age-verification Arrangements do not bring into force section 19 of the Digital Economy Act 2017, which would have given the regulator powers to impose a financial penalty on persons who have not complied with their instructions to require that they have in place an age verification system which is fit for purpose and effectively managed so as to ensure that commercial pornographic material online will not normally be accessible by persons under the age of 18.
