Online Safety Bill laid before UK Parliament

Today the Online Safety Bill is being laid before the UK Parliament, the next step towards it becoming law and giving Ofcom powers to help people to lead a safer life online.

Today marks an important step towards creating a safer life online for the UK's children and adults.

Our research shows the need for rules that protect users from serious harm – but which also recognise the great things about being online, and protect freedom of expression. We're looking forward to starting the job.

Dame Melanie Dawes, Ofcom Chief Executive
