Safer Children in a Digital World: the report of the Byron Review


Recommended Posts

It's always nice to be up to date. If the pdf links dont show up on this post, just go to the web site. It's all there.






Published 27th March 2008

On 6th September 2007, the Prime Minister asked me to conduct an independent review looking at the risks to children from exposure to potentially harmful or inappropriate material on the internet and in video games.

My Review is about the needs of children and young people. It is about preserving their right to take the risks that form an inherent part of their development by enabling them to play video games and surf the net in a safe and informed way.

By listening to children and young people and putting them at the heart of this Review - and by replacing emotion with evidence - I hope I have provided some very necessary focus to what is a very necessary debate.
