Motion text

That this House condemns cyberbullying, online harassment and trolling; notes with concern the detrimental effect it can have on victims' mental and physical well-being; further notes that much of this bullying is sexist, racist or homophobic in nature; calls on the Government to equip young people and other web users with education on how to recognise and report cyber-bullying; urges the establishment of a support network for the victims of online harassment; and, given that a significant proportion of online harassment emanates from outside the UK, encourages the Government to work with its partners internationally to ensure the perpetrators of harassment cannot use jurisdictional issues as a means to escape responsibility for their actions online.
