HC Deb 01 June 1905 vol 147 cc434-5

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that the open sale of immoral literature is largely on the increase in London; whether any censorship or supervision is exercised; and will this matter have the attention of the Government.


This matter is under the constant supervision of the police, and they inform me that they believe that at no time has there ever been less trafficking in immoral literature in London than there is at present. The † See page 326. police, I may add, would be very glad to receive any information respecting the open sale of such literature, in order that they may be able to take proceedings.
