The Internet service provider TalkTalk is reported to have raised concerns with the education minister, Sarah Teather, about internet suicide sites.  Suicide is said to be the most commonly blocked subject matter by domestic customers using TalkTalk’s filtering software, ahead of self-harm and pornography. Mr Harding, Chief executive of TalkTalk, is reported as saying to the education minister: “Suicide is more important to parents than porn, so why mandate [filters against] porn and not suicide?”  (Source: The Guardian).
