Panel | Online safety bill: Promoting user safety

The online safety bill will deliver on the Government’s commitment to make the UK the safest place in the world to be online while defending free expression. The bill will help the public to navigate the internet and limit harmful user generated content, this includes children and vulnerable users. Whilst the bill will have a positive impact on tackling hate speech and blocking harmful content online, we should consider the concerns which have been raised. 

  • The term ‘online harm’ is being considered by some as too vague to control, how and when will we develop a unique definition or list of users generated harmful content? 
  • Has the bill considered all online harms posed to women and girls such as online subcultures and harms posed through dating apps?  
  • How are we ensuring the bill will not impact on journalism and freedom of speech online?  
  • How are we ensuring that users are unable to find ways to overcome safety measures? And should we place more responsibility on users to moderate their own content?
