Motion: Safer Internet Day 2014 Campaign 

That this Assembly endorses and supports the Safer Internet Day 2014 Campaign entitled ‘Let’s create a better internet together’; recognises that whilst it poses significant dangers to children and young people, used properly the internet can also positively affect social, economic and educational advancement; acknowledges that all users have a part to play in making the internet a safer and better place for everybody; and calls upon Her Majesty’s Government to encourage a cross-cutting approach to online safety by incorporating it into the school curriculum, by affording parents and carers easy access to sufficient information to take necessary action and by encouraging businesses and industry to self-regulate their web-based content and services.
