With this it will be convenient to discuss the following:

Amendment 90, in clause 22, page 23, line 29, leave out

“or ancillary service provider”

and insert

“, ancillary service provider, or internet service provider.”.

Amendment 77, in clause 22, page 24, line 23, at end insert “or

(c) an internet service provider.”.

This amendment and amendment 78 ensure that the definition of an ancillary service provider would include ISPs; and defines internet service providers.

Amendment 91, in clause 22, page 24, line 23, at end insert—

“(6A) In this section an “ancillary service provider” includes, but is not limited to, domain name registrars, social media platforms, internet service providers, and search engines.”.

Amendment 67, in clause 25, page 26, line 2, at end insert—

““internet service provider” has the same meaning as in section 124N of the Communications Act 2003 (interpretation);”.

See the explanatory statement for amendment 66.
