Parliamentary questions
14 January 2013
E-000341-13
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 117
Amelia Andersdotter (Verts/ALE)

 Subject:  Evidence base for child protection measures adopted by the Commission
 Answer(s) 

In Question E-007751/2012, I asked the Commission for information about the evidence on which it bases its Internet child protection policy. In its reply, the Commission provided no examples, admitting that it has failed completely — throughout the entire history of the Internet, and notwithstanding the millions of euros spent on the Safer Internet Programme — to develop any statistical analysis.

In its reply to Question E-009979/2012, the Commission explains that the problem exists (disingenuously answering a question that I did not ask) and points, again, to unspecified research on which its online child protection policy is apparently based.

The Commission has failed twice to answer my questions, and has failed to include relevant information in the impact assessment of the recent directive. I therefore respectfully ask the Commission, for the third time, to inform me what evidence it is using to develop policy in this very important policy area.
