GN 1.0 / 2.0

Reporting directly to the Prime Minister, the Council will help to improve the regulation and education around internet use, tackling problems around online bullying, safer search features, and violent video games. This unprecedented coalition of experts and organizations will ensure that parents and young people have a voice in the development of a Child Internet Safety Strategy, to be delivered early next year. - Government statement

Well, I always think it’s good to make sure that children aren’t able to get their hands on violent video games, but I am a tad worried about how this organization will go about getting that job done. Thanks to DrDark for the heads up.
