Online Child Abuse Written Answer, 27/01/14 [E/NI/S/W]

Written Answer given in the House of Commons on 27 January 2014 in response to Alun Cairn's (Cons) question asking the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps she is taking to tackle child abuse online.

The Minister of State for Police and Criminal Justice, Damian Green, replied that real progress has been made in tackling child abuse online. Internet search engines have made changes to their search mechanisms, and these new measures have been effective in making it harder to access child abuse images. Britain and the US have also created a new taskforce to work with industry to counter online child sexual exploitation.

For the full answer to this and other questions see the House of Commons Hansard 27 January 2014 which is available from the UK Parliament website.
