Jo Stevens – 2020 Comments on the Online Harm Bill

The comments made by Jo Stevens, the Shadow Secretary of State for Digital, on 7 December 2020.

The long-awaited online harms bill is a once in a generation opportunity to tackle these dangerous elements of the internet which have real-world consequences.

We need the Government to take this seriously whether it is hate speech, disinformation or self-harm content.

The internet should be a safe place for everyone and this legislation must be ambitious in its scope.
