Quotes

...The perception is that young people today are very comfortable with all aspects of the internet," she said. "They are growing up in a different time compared to their parents. What this research shows is of course things are slightly different but many of the concerns that adults have are also reflected by young people themselves."
Pádraig Barry, chairman of INCA, said: "The double whammy of no change to the SWI minimum under ECO and the sudden closure of GDHIF has left the SWI industry reeling. This is despite previous commitments from government to work with us to avoid another ‘boom and bust’ cycle. INCA is now working with DECC to establish the likelihood of GDHIF vouchers not being redeemed so that the scheme can be reopened quickly and make sure the money available is actually spent. We are also committed to ensuring the rules are tightened up going forward to prevent another raft of phantom vouchers."
Furthermore, almost eight out of 10 young women said pornography had led to pressure on girls to look and act a certain way, while 66% said "it would be easier growing up if pornography was less easy to access for young people"
