Question for written answer E-007904-17
to the Commission
Rule 130
Giulia Moi (EFDD)

 Subject:  Smartphones and children
 Answer in writing 

The use of mobile phones in schools is a much discussed topic at present in Europe.

The position taken varies from country to country but the aim is always to protect minors, and above all to restrict the presence of radio waves near school buildings while awaiting a law on the issue and some clear studies on electromagnetic pollution.

The positions taken range from that of France, where use of mobile phones is completely forbidden in secondary schools, to Italy’s, where their use is allowed in certain circumstances.

— Does the Commission have a particular position on use of electronic apparatus, especially by minors?

— Would it be prepared to draw up a law that would standardise use of electronic apparatus by minors, in order to protect the health of our citizens?
