To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what mechanisms she plans to put in place to revise the code of practice for providers of online social media platforms to respond to future technical developments.
19 July 2017
The Digital Economy Act requires the Secretary of State, before issuing a code of practice, to consult social media providers to whom the code is intended to give guidance and such other persons as the Secretary of State considers it appropriate to consult. We will take forward this consultation as part of the Internet Safety Strategy.
The detail of what the code of practice will include will be decided following this consultation.
