Dear Mr Vaizey,

Thank you for your efforts in arranging a meeting with internet service providers to discuss how the industry can better support parents and help them ensure that their children cannot access pornography. We understand you are meeting with ISPs on Monday (7 February).

We wish to communicate the support of the members and supporters of The Madeleine Foundation for far better control of the level and amount of internet pronography.

We also support the campaign of mediamarch and others on this issue: link:

Research clearly indicates that viewing pornography leads to an acceptance of violent and unhealthy notions of sex and relationships, where the objectification of women and aggressive sexual behaviour are the norm.

That is one of the reasons why we strongly support your initiative, suggested by Claire Perry MP, to switch the default setting for internet pornography into our homes to ‘off’, and implement an ‘opt-in’ system.

I urge you to promote it as robustly as possible, indeed insist on compliance with this reasonable suggestion, at your forthcoming roundtable with the ISPs on Monday.

I am sure that if the whole country knew about this meeting on Monday they would also be writing to you, as we do now, to urge you to take immediate action. If not, the ISPs will need to be controlled by more effective laws to end child pornography on the internet and to stem the explosion in the availability of adult pronography on the net. The two are related, as it is known that many move to ever more extreme forms of adult pornography before moving on to view child pornography.

Yours sincerely,

Tony Bennett
Secretary

It is a pity the meeting has not been publicised more widely in the media.
good letter from the Foundation.
