    Hi, a very well thought-out submission. Regarding age as a single factor for consideration, I would take the view that the age must be reduced to the minimum age at which we know that significant numbers of children join SNS. It is farcical that we cannot hold SNS accountable for the production of usage data and protection of those under 13 years because of the notional age limitation. If you are interested in having a discussion at some point then please drop me a line. Best, Pat
