HC Deb 11 July 1927 vol 208 cc1720-1

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is prepared to take action to prohibit the exhibition in Empire territory of undesirable cinematograph films which tend to lower the white races in the eyes of the native peoples?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Amery)

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Southwark Central (Colonel Day) on the 30th of May, and to the view I expressed in regard to censorship in my reply to the hon. Member for Blackpool (Sir W. de Frece) on the 2nd of May.

Colonel DAY

Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether anything further is being done in regard to censorship in our Colonies, because there are already complaints appearing in the Press.


I am not aware of anything further being done.
