Christian campaigners are concerned that the long-awaited Online Safety Bill has been delayed due to the Tory Party elections.
Following the resignation of Boris Johnson, the Conservatives are racing to find a new party leader - and Prime Minister.
In amongst the furore, the Online Safety Bill was due to have a crucial sitting.
However, Politics Home reports that this will now be postponed indefinitely.
Previously, a similar bill was abandoned despite passing through the House of Commons and the House of Lords.
If the bill is pushed back until the autumn, the values of the incoming Prime Minister are likely to have an effect.
Christian charity CARE has campaigned on the issue for a long time.
Speaking to Premier, James Mildred, director of communications and engagements, said he's hopeful that the next Prime Minister will prioritise the safety of children online.
He said: "Everything is up for grabs now. I suspect we will see a moderated form of this bill coming back and that will allow the debate to start again. We are saying to the government - and we will say to whoever comes into power in the autumn - the safety of children is an absolute necessity in this digital age."
A new Prime Minister is expected to be appointed before Conservative Party Conference in September. They would then form a government shortly after.
