HC Deb 03 December 1953 vol 521 c1304
35. Mrs. White

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action he proposes to take on the recommendations by the Cinema Consultative Committee concerning the proposed ban on the admission to cinemas of unaccompanied children under five years of age and on unaccompanied children under 12 years of age after 8 o'clock at night.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave on 12th November to a Question by the hon. Member for Greenwich (Mr. Reeves).

Mrs. White

Can the right hon. and learned Gentleman tell us how much longer it will be before he names the day? [Laughter.] The day to which I am referring is in connection with the Cinematograph Act, 1952.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

The Regulations which are necessary before the Act can be brought into force are being drafted. I hope the hon. Lady will not make a shotgun approach to it, but I can say that the day will be early in the New Year. At least, that is what I hope.
