“It is vital that we continue to strive to make sure that the UK is the safest place to be online. I encourage all schools, businesses and parents across Bromsgrove to engage in conversations with the children and young people in their care about online safety.”
“I will continue to work with my colleagues across Parliament to ensure that the internet is a safe place for our children and young people.”
