HC Deb 17 May 1934 vol 289 cc1923-4
19. Mr. LECKIE

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware of the increasing dissatisfaction of the public with the laxity of the British Board of Film Censors in licensing films of a demoralising character, notwithstanding statements made in the annual report of 1931 that the president of the board had come to the conclusion that more drastic action would have to be taken in regard to such films in future; and if he will consider the introduction of legislation to set up an official censorship unconnected with the trade?


The answer to both parts of the question is in the negative.
