HC Deb 16 March 1998 vol 308 c516W
Ms Beverley Hughes

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the internet service providers offering internet access to UK residents and businesses which(a) are a party to the agreement which established the Internet Watch Foundation and (b) are not party to this agreement. [33329]

Mr. Michael

Most Internet Service Providers are members of the industry's trade associations—the Internet Service Providers Association (ISPA) and the London Internet Exchange (LINX)—which supported the establishment of the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) (details of their membership may be obtained from the relevant association). The issue of non-affiliated service providers will be looked at in the context of the Review of the work of the IWF which the Government announced on 3 March.
