Epilepsy And Screen-Based Electronic Games

EDM number 61 in 2007-08, proposed by John Penrose on 06/11/2007.
Categorised under the topics of Diseases and Information technology.

That this House recognises that photosensitive epileptic seizures can be triggered by screen-based electronic games; notes with concern that there is no legal duty on computer game publishers to test their products before publication to make sure they do not trigger a seizure; further notes with concern that there is no legal requirement for computer game publishers to offer warnings that their products could trigger a seizure; and calls upon the Government to consider making it a legal requirement for computer game publishers to test their products before publication and to remove scenes that could potentially trigger a photosensitive epileptic seizure.

This motion has been signed by a total of 38 MPs.
