Email your MP today to #KeepKidsOffPorn

Leading a coalition of charities, experts and survivors, CEASE has sent a letter with 44 signatories to the Prime Minister calling for amendments to the Online Safety Bill to ensure that children are protected from pornography by timely and effective age verification measures.

We welcome the fact that the Online Safety Bill now includes a standalone duty for all websites publishing pornography to prevent children’s access. But history has made us wary.

We ask the Prime Minister to:

  1. Ensure that the standalone duty for robust, independent, standards-based Age Verification to protect children from exposure to pornography remains in the Online Safety Bill. 
  2. Include a statutory deadline for these Age Verification measures to commence within 6 months of the Bill receiving Royal Assent. 
  3. Give Ofcom powers to commence business disruption measures after seven days notice in respect of any non-compliant pornographic content.
