Ian Hudghton (Greens/EFA) − This report deals with important issues. Given the absence of real borders in the digital world, tackling such things as child pornography can be best achieved through EU and international cooperation. The EU has already taken initiatives in this area and the UK has at times opted in. Should the UK subsequently opt to leave all the justice and home affairs legislation into which it has currently opted, that cross-border cooperation will be lost. Children's safety should not be endangered in order to satisfy the xenophobic right of the UK Tory party.
