The Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee urged the government to publish a draft copy of promised legislation by this autumn. It follows suggestions that the Online Harms Bill might not be in force until 2024.
The group’s chairman Julian Knight said “we still haven’t seen correct legislative architecture put in place, and we are still relying on social media companies’ consciences”.
The minis are miniature apps made by third-party developers that run inside of Snapchat to create more social experiences among friends.
The Headspace Mini is one of four which Snap is launching this week. The others are: Let’s Do It, which lets groups make decisions together, Prediction Master from Mammoth Media, which “serves timely questions on everything from the Stock Market to sneaker drops, so Snapchatters can see which of their friends is the true psychic,” and Flashcards by Tembo, to create study aids.
Research Shows Girls Informally Excluded From Schools at a Higher Rate than Boys
The study, which was completed by Social Finance, a not-for-profit group which focuses on social problems, shows that girls are being excluded through moves to other schools or early exit, which means they leave before the end of year 11 but do not finish school elsewhere.
The research showed that in the case of “early exits”, which is one of the so-called informal exclusion routes, the rate among boys was just over 4% while among girls it was just under 6%.
The study focuses on exclusions in Cheshire West and Chester, but researchers say the findings have national implications.
