A proposal to make 13 the age of consent for signing up to online services such as social media platforms has come under fire in parliament. The House of Lords was holding its first debate on the Data Protection Bill, to ensure that the UK’s data protection regime aligns with that of the EU following Brexit.
Lady Lane-Fox of Soho, former web entrepreneur of Lastminute.com Martha Lane Fox, confessed she found it ’incredibly hard to read and even harder to understand’.
Opponents were also highly critical of the bill’s proposal that the age at which a child can consent to their data being processed online be set at 13, saying it would almost certainly be illegal under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
