MP urges social media ban for under 16s

Conservative MP Miriam Cates has called on Rishi Sunak to consider banning under 16s from social media and smartphones.

Speaking during PMQs, Ms Cates claimed there has been a rise in “poor teen mental health” and “children addicted to pornography” since 2010.

Rishi Sunak said that the Online Safety Act “protects children from harmful or inappropriate” material.
