Suicide and the Internet

The Ministry of Justice has been reviewing the law on assisting suicide. The idea has been primarily to bring it up to date (from its 1961 incarnation) with language that people can understand. The government has particularly been looking at internet issues relating to this.

The report concluded that no new laws needed to be put in place that would affect the ISP industry. ISPs already take down websites when they are notified that they contain illegal material. We are also free to restrict access to harmful or distasteful material in line with our acceptable use policies. Simplifying the law will undoubtedly help us to do this.
