ELSPA responds to PM’s ‘concerns’ over games

Following’s Gordon Brown’s comments to The Sun this week, ELSPA has been in dialogue with the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform – and has been told that despite the tabloid’s spin on the story, Brown’s opinion on games has not changed.

“We were obviously concerned by the Prime Minister’s comments yesterday on knife crime and computer games,” said Jackson. “Since this time we have been reassured by DBERR that the government’s position in this area has not altered; the Prime Minister remains concerned about the protection of children from access to certain new technologies which is why the government commissioned the Byron Review. We have been further reassured that there will be no changes to government policy in this area until Dr Byron publishes her findings at the end of March.”
