The Government is considering its approach to delivering this commitment, and will share its plans in due course. Helping parents to protect their children from inappropriate and harmful content online remains a top priority for the Government. Work will continue on the measures implemented under the previous administration, these include easy to use parental control filters in the home.

Ministers will engage with the UK Council for Child Internet Safety (UKCCIS) and other key stakeholders as this policy is developed.
