The majority of MPs voted against requiring pupils be taught about the risks and dangers of internet pornography, and about the new legal age requirement to access it provided for in the Bill.

MPs were considering the Digital Economy Bill[1].

The proposed new clause rejected in this vote was titled Internet pornography: requirement to teach age requirement and risks as part of sex education and stated:

  • “After section 403(1A)(b) of the Education Act 1996, add—
  • “(c) they learn about the risks and dangers of internet pornography, and the legal age requirement to access internet pornography under Part 3 of the Digital Economy Act 2017.”

The rejected clause was accompanied by the following explanation statement:

  • This new clause would mean that the Secretary of State would have to include in guidance to maintained schools that pupils learn as part of sex education the risks and dangers of internet pornography and the legal age requirement to access it, as provided for under Part 3 of the Digital Economy Act 2017.
