Cyber-bullying Debate, 03/12/13 [E/NI/S/W]

Debate in the House of Commons on 3 December 2013 on cyber-bullying. The debate was opened by David Simpson (DUP).

He said:

"We need to work together to eradicate cyber-bullying. The venom that a cyber-bully produces has been proven to leave long-term effects and to make the lives of their victims miserable. Many victims succumb to anxiety, depression and other stress-related disorders. The anonymity and protection of distance makes it easier to push the boundaries and to provoke and taunt with practically no accountability".

For full details see the House of Commons Hansard 2 December 2013 which is available from the UK Parliament website.
