Downing Street has rejected a call from a leading public health expert to consider lowering the age of consent for sex to 15. Professor John Ashton, president of the Faculty of Public Health has called for a national debate, saying society sends “confused” signals about when sex is permitted. But No 10 was swift to pour cold water on the idea. A spokesman said: “We reject the call to lower the age of consent. The current age is in place to protect children and there are no plans to change it.” Professor Ashton’s intervention follows official figures which suggest up to a third of teenagers have sex before the present age of consent of 16. He said lowering the age by a year would make it easier for 15-year-olds in sexual relationships to obtain contraception or sexual health advice from the NHS.

As a result of the victory, porn-blocking filters will be automatically selected for new Internet customers – although they will be able to choose to switch them off.
