§ 44. Mr. G. MACDONALD
asked the Minister of Health the number of persons receiving out-relief for reasons other than unemployment and those receiving out-relief on account of unemployment in July, 1931, and at the latest date for which figures are available, giving separate figures for Lancashire?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of HEALTH (Mr. Shakespeare)
As the answer contains a number of figures, I will, with the hon. Member's permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ Following is the answer:
§ sider granting facilities this session for the passing of the Bill presented by the hon. Member for Gillingham which seeks to render the exhibition of such films illegal?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Ramsay MacDONALD)
I do not know to which 23 film my hon. and gallant Friend refers, but I am informed that the British Board of Film Censors do not pass any incident in a film when it is apparent that cruelty has been involved in the production of that incident. Everyone must sympathise with the objects which the promoters of the Bill have in view, but I am advised that there are practical difficulties in dealing with the matter in the manner proposed. In view of the present state of public business, I regret that special facilities cannot be afforded for its discussion.
