House of Lords Communications Committee: Growing Up with the Internet

Hamish Macleod, Director of Mobile UK, comments on the House of Lord Communications Committee's report 'Growing up with the Internet':

"Mobile UK welcomes the House of Lords Communications Committee’s report ‘growing up with the Internet’, which records the work the UK’s major mobile network operators have done in the area of child safety. As recommended in the report, mobile operators have, since 2005, provided internet filters set to ‘on’ by default. Mobile UK, in line with its "Code of Practice, works with the BBFC to ensure that the filtering is done to the highest possible standard."
