Dear Children’s Commissioner for England,

I read with interest your proposed “statutory duty of care” for online service providers.

I should be grateful if you could provide me with:

- any privacy impact assessment which you carried out, or other analysis of privacy risks arising from your proposal; and

- any assessment of other fundamental rights, including the right to receive and impart information under Article 13 of the
Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Yours faithfully,

Neil Brown
