Communications Committee

The Internet: to regulate or not to regulate? inquiry

Inquiry status: open

The deadline for written submissions has now passed. Contact the Clerk if you still wish to make a submission. Oral evidence ongoing.

Scope of the inquiry

The Committee wishes to explore how the regulation of the internet should be improved, including through better self-regulation and governance, and whether a new regulatory framework for the internet is necessary or whether the general law of the UK is adequate. This inquiry will consider whether online platforms which mediate individuals’ use of the internet have sufficient accountability and transparency, adequate governance and provide effective behavioural standards for users.”
