Online Harms White Paper April 2019

On 8 April the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport and the Home Office published the Online Harms White Paper, which sets out the Government’s plans for a package of measures to make the internet safer for everyone.  The White Paper is currently open for consultation until 1 July, and both it and the consultation details can be found at www.gov.uk by searching for ‘Online Harms White Paper’.

The White Paper outlines plans for a new regulatory framework to address all forms of online harms, including content that is seen to encourage or assist suicide.  Once the regulator is in place, it will work with internet and social media companies to ensure that abhorrent content is removed.
