HC Deb 02 July 1931 vol 254 cc1440-1
24. Mr. DAY

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that many shops in the seaside resorts are at present exposing for sale indecent postcards; and will he issue a general circular to provincial police authorities to the effect that the existing Law should be strictly enforced?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. The police are well aware of their powers and duties in this matter, and there is no need for the issue of a circular. If my hon. Friend will send me any in- formation in his possession, I will see that it is forwarded to the proper authorities.


If I send these four postcards which I purchased to the right hon. Gentleman, will he take notice of them?


I will consider whether I ought to send them to the proper authority.


Is the hon. Gentleman allowed to have indecent postcards in his possession?
