New Conservative believes that our children and young people should be able to surf the net for education, study and social interaction in safety, without being confronted by, and/or lured into, sexually explicit images and material. Pornography is an ever increasing mental health problem within New Zealand and harmful to society at large.
New Conservative would introduce legislation requiring internet service providers to block access to explicit adult websites by default. This would mean that all porn in New Zealand would be blocked or filtered by default, and would only be made available to individuals when an ISP receives a request to unblock it from a customer with appropriate age ID. Opt in rather than opt out.
New Conservative is the only Party prepared to address this problem.
