   11   ThinkUKnow program

The order of the day having been read for the resumption of the debate on the motion of Mrs Marino—That this House:—

(1)        recognises the:

(a)        importance of educating and protecting our children in the online space; and

(b)        work of the Australian Federal Police through the ThinkUKnow program, a free, evidence based cyber safety program, to provide educational presentations to parents, carers and teachers, and students across Australia;

(2)        congratulates the Australian Government on passing the Criminal Code Amendment (Protecting Minors Online) Act 2017 , also known as Carly’s Law, which targets online predators preparing or planning to cause harm to, procure or engage in sexual activity with a child; and

(3)        recognises the new law is a testament to Sonya Ryan, who has advocated for this since her 15 year old daughter Carly was murdered a decade ago by an online predator posing as a teenage boy.

Debate resumed.

Debate adjourned, and the resumption of the debate made an order of the day for the next sitting.
