Tackling Online Abuse

Inquiry

The Petitions Committee has launched an inquiry into tackling online abuse, to consider issues raised in a number of petitions from the last Parliament and to follow up on the Committee’s previous inquiry into online abuse and the experiences of disabled people. The inquiry will resume in the wake of the Government's publication of its draft Online Safety Bill in May.
