We are considering the full range of possible solutions to address existing and emerging issues relating to online safety, including legal and regulatory changes where necessary. We will, in the coming weeks, publish a joint DCMS-Home Office Online Harms White Paper which will set out a range of legislative and non-legislative measures detailing how we will tackle online harms and setting clear responsibilities for tech companies to keep people safe.
