Cyber-Bullying Motion, 22/10/13 [E/NI/S/W]

Early Day Motion lodged in the House of Commons on 22 October 2013 by Katy Clark (Lab) on Cyber-Bullying in the UK.

The full text of the motion reads:

That this House congratulates Cybersmile, the cyber-bulling charity, for being shortlisted for the UK's Best New Charity Award at the 2013 Charity Times Awards; draws attention to the growing problem of cyber-bullying in the UK; highlights research from Cybersmile which indicates that 44 per cent of teachers believe there have been more than 10 incidents of cyber-bullying in their school in the past 12 months and that around three quarters of teachers have personal experience of cyber-bullying and only a third of schools have a specific cyber-bullying policy; notes with concern that cyber-bullying is a crime that can affect victims anytime anywhere, including in the home; and calls on the Government and devolved administrations to ensure that cyber-bullying is included as part of the curriculum in all schools so that children can be made properly aware of the issue and know who to turn to for advice and support in the event that they experience cyber-bullying.
