OFCOM (Duty regarding Prevention of Serious Self-harm and Suicide) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (3 Feb 2023)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: ..., outlined, her Bill was due to be read a second time the day after the death of Her late Majesty the Queen. That very sad reason for delay has meant that we are able to look at it alongside the Online Safety Bill, now before your Lordships’ House, which is helpful. I will endeavour to explain why the Government think that Bill deals with many of the issues raised, while keeping an open...

Online Safety Bill - Second Reading (1 Feb 2023)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...for children and vulnerable adults; transparency of systems and power for Ofcom to get to grips with the algorithms underlying them; that regulation is practical and privacy protecting; that online behaviour is treated on all fours with offline; and that there is a limitation of powers of the Secretary of State. We recognise the theme which has come through very strongly today: the...

Online Safety Bill: content (17 Jan 2023)

Damian Collins: My right hon. Friend makes an important point about things that are illegal offline but legal online. The Bill has still not defined a lot of content that could be illegal and yet promoted through advertising. As part of their ongoing work on the Bill and the online advertising review, will the Government establish the general principle that content that is illegal will be regulated whether...

Online Safety Bill: New Clause 1 - Report on redress for individual complaints (17 Jan 2023)

Caroline Dinenage: ...do not differentiate between harmful and harmless content. They see a pattern and they exploit it. We often talk about the parallels between the online and offline world—we say that what is illegal online should be illegal offline, and vice versa—but in reality the two worlds are fundamentally different. In the real world, for a young person struggling with an eating disorder or at...

Public Bill Committee: Online Safety Bill: Clause 12 - Adults’ risk assessment duties (13 Dec 2022)

Kirsty Blackman: On illegal content, is the Minister proposing that the Government will introduce new legislation to make, for example, holocaust denial and eating disorder content illegal, whether it is online or offline? If he is saying that the bar in the online and offline worlds should be the same, will the Government introduce more hate crime legislation?

Business Rates and Levelling Up — [David Mundell in the Chair] (13 Dec 2022)

Victoria Atkins: ...many in the consultation. I look forward to his future correspondence. The support package that we have introduced means that the revaluation will go some way to addressing the imbalance between online and offline retailers. On average, large distribution warehouses will see an increase in bills of about 27%, and bricks and mortar retailers will see decreases of about 20%. We recognise...

Standards: Code of Conduct and Guide to the Rules (12 Dec 2022)

Kim Leadbeater: ...free from the dangerous toxicity we have seen in recent years. I believe we all have a responsibility in this regard, but, sadly, we have seen behaviour in this Chamber and outside that is clearly unacceptable, and we must raise the bar. That is why I am pleased to see us acting to strengthen the code of conduct, which I wholeheartedly support. We in this House have a sincere duty and...

Consideration following re-committal and Third Reading (5 Dec 2022)

Lucy Powell: ...) understood that this is not about thwarting the right to hold views that most of us find abhorrent, but about not allowing those views to be widely shared on a powerful platform that, in the offline world, just does not exist. She understood that the Online Safety Bill came from a fundamental recognition that the algorithms and the power of platforms to push people towards content that,...

Online Safety Bill: New Clause 11 - Notices to deal with terrorism content or CSEA content (or both) (5 Dec 2022)

Miriam Cates: ...stories of their children being drawn into this. Yes, in this country it is thankfully very difficult to get a double mastectomy when you are under 18, but it is incredibly easy to buy testosterone illegally online and to inject it, egged on by adults in other countries. Once a girl has injected testosterone during puberty, she will have a deep voice and facial hair for life and...

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: ...offences in these Acts which criminalise false and threatening communications. Protection for Adults: The Triple Shield It is unquestionable that speech that is illegal in the street should also be illegal online, and that major platforms should remove illegal content from their sites. While most platforms, including social media sites, have robust terms of service detailing the types of...

Michelle Donelan: ...offences in these Acts which criminalise false and threatening communications.

Written Answers — Department for Education: Internet: Education (25 Nov 2022)

Baroness Barran: ...the work of Ofcom and has made no assessment of Ofcom’s progress on this matter. Ofsted sets clear expectations that schools teach pupils how to understand and recognise risks they may encounter online. This should include a well constructed relationship, sex and health education curriculum that addresses online abuse and harassment, online safeguarding risks, and what constitutes a...

Freedom of Expression (Communications and Digital Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (27 Oct 2022)

Baroness Featherstone: ...their media are state-controlled, to contact the outside world. So, getting the balance right between freedom of speech and the need to qualify it is a very important task. Of course, what is illegal offline is illegal online: that is the easy bit and I guess that is where my preference lies, with very few exceptions. As the noble Lord, Lord Gilbert, said, I want maximum controls in my...

Online Harms — [Peter Dowd in the Chair] (26 Oct 2022)

Damian Collins: ...form part of the schedule of priority illegal offences. On priority harms, I would say that that is the stuff that the platforms have to proactively look for. Anything illegal could be considered illegal online, and the regulators could take action against it. Let me finish by thanking all the Members here, including my hon. Friend the Member for Gosport (Dame Caroline Dinenage), another...

Online Pornography: Digital Economy Act 2017 - Question (26 Oct 2022)

Lord Morrow: My Lords, I hope the Minister will agree that keeping children safe online requires more than just age verification. What is illegal or prohibited content offline should also be illegal and prohibited online. Will the Government ensure that the new legislation currently in the other place will indeed ensure that protections offline will be the same for online content?

Online Safety Bill: New Clause 7 - Duties regarding user-generated pornographic content: regulated services (12 Jul 2022)

John Nicolson: ...standard for R18 classification. The point of the Bill, as the Minister has repeatedly said, is to make the online world a safer place, by doing what we all agree must be done—making what is illegal offline, illegal online. That is why so many Members think that the lack of regulation around pornography is a major omission in the Bill. The new clause stipulates age and consent checks for...

Online Safety Bill: New Clause 19 - Duties to protect news publisher content (12 Jul 2022)

Joanna Cherry: ..., which the Bill seeks to impose on online services, will be a significant departure from existing legislation regulating online content. It will allow for a more preventative approach to regulating illegal online content and will form part of a unified regulatory framework applying to a wide range of online services. I welcome the benefits that this would represent, especially with...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Antisemitism (5 Jul 2022)

Kemi Badenoch: ...bodies to do so. We also continue to support the independent adviser on Antisemitism, Lord Mann, to provide expert advice to Government on contemporary Antisemitism, and how best to tackle it. Online abuse of any kind, including antisemitic abuse, is unacceptable. We want the internet to be a safe space for all users - we are clear that what is unacceptable offline should be unacceptable...

Public Bill Committee: Online Safety Bill: New Clause 23 - Priority illegal content: violence against women and girls (28 Jun 2022)

Alex Davies-Jones: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. This new clause would apply provisions applied to priority illegal content also to content that constitutes, encourages or promotes violence against women and girls. As it stands, the Bill is failing women and girls. In an attempt to tackle that alarming gap, the new clause uses the Istanbul convention definition of VAWG, given that the...
