Charities express concern over failure to deal with access to online child abuse images, 23/02/09 [W/E/NI/S]

The Children’s Charities Coalition on Internet Safety (CHIS) has expressed its concern at the failure of the UK Government to fulfil its policy commitment in relation to online child abuse images.

The Government had asked Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in the UK to block access to child abuse web sites by the end of 2007. However, in January 2009, over a year after the deadline expired, the Government confirmed that 5% of ISPs have failed to act.
