The Prime Minister's spokesman insisted he has confidence in his Culture Secretary Maria Miller amid a spat with the Daily Telegraph.
The Culture Secretary Maria Miller has said internet companies have agreed a "fundamental change in the approach of the industry to removing child abuse images that are too readily available online."
She told ITV News that the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) would be "actively seeking out those abhorrent images" rather than waiting for such sites to be reported.
Ms Miller said Cabinet members "all take this very seriously and we are working together across departments."
London is ready to host a safe marathon in the wake of bombings at the Boston event, Culture Secretary Maria Miller told MPs.
Ms Miller said the 2012 Olympics and years of experience demonstrated that the Metropolitan Police and other security services have an excellent record at ensuring sporting events on the streets of the capital are safe.
The Culture Secretary said, "You will know from London 2012 last year, this country has a great deal of experience of ensuring our sporting events go well and that security is at the heart of the planning process".
"The London Marathon is no different", she continued. "The Minister for Sport [Hugh Robertson] met with the mayor yesterday again to go through the plans to make sure ... that we have the right security procedures in place".
During a brief formal statement, she said, "I'm delighted this weekend's runners here in London, a number of whom are MPs... will be asked to wear a black ribbon as a sign of respect and solidarity. A period of silence will be observed before the race begins".
I am pleased that the BBC Trust have acted quickly to publish Nick Pollard's review.
The report raises serious questions around editorial and management issues at the BBC and I look to the Trust to help tackle these.
I also remind the Trust how vital it is to publish all relevant evidence, as soon as possible, in order to re-build public trust and confidence in the BBC.
It remains critical that we do not lose sight of the most important issue in this - the many victims of sexual abuse by Savile.
– Culture Secretary Maria Miller
I urge the BBC to now focus on the review into those abuses, and ensure it is swift and transparent.
I will remain in close touch with the Trust as they oversee this work.
The Culture Secretary receives the backing of the Prime Minister but faces a potentially lengthy investigation into her expenses, reports ITV News' Political Correspondent Alex Forrest:
The Daily Telegraph has published a timeline of the sequence of events over its investigation and subsequent reporting of the Culture Secretary's expense claims "to set the record straight."
It says it was contacted by a source about the story nearly a month ago - on November 17.
It has also published emails between Maria Miller and the paper's editor Tony Gallagher:
The Prime Minister told reporters that Maria Miller has "excellent answers" to all questions being asked about her expenses.
David Cameron has given his backing to Culture Secretary Maria Miller amid questions over her expenses.
"Maria Miller does an absolutely excellent job and she has my full support," the Prime Minister told reporters as he arrived at the EU Summit in Brussels.
"A newspaper has asked her a number of questions and as far as I can see she has excellent answers to all those questions," he added.
Maria Miller has denied that she had used her position overseeing the post-Leveson reforms of press regulation to ward off the Telegraph. She told the Evening Standard:
This has nothing to do with the Leveson inquiry. My concern is that any investigation is done in accordance with the rules, the Editors' Code. What I did was to contact the editor of the Telegraph directly to express my concern at the way his investigation was being undertaken.
The journalist hadn't contacted my office first. She had doorstepped a member of my family, a person who is not in public life, a person ill-equipped to deal with national media inquiries on my behalf.
Mrs Miller's special adviser, Joanna Hindley, reportedly told Telegraph reporters investigating her expenses: "Maria has obviously been having quite a lot of editors' meetings around Leveson at the moment. I am just going to flag up that connection for you to think about."
