Motion text

That this House is concerned about the lack of progress being made in the formulation and introduction of age ratings for music videos which currently are exempt from any restrictions in the UK; believes this to be totally unacceptable as many contain material which is often highly inappropriate for children in respect of language, violence and sexual imagery; is alarmed that despite promises made, the Department for Culture, Media and Sport has so far failed to even establish a consultation process on this most important matter; and calls on the Government to act quickly to protect children from being exploited by such unacceptable commercial practices.
