HC Deb 16 February 1970 vol 796 c16
25. Mr. Dudley Smith

asked the Attorney-General if he will refer to the Director of Public Prosecutions the offensive literature which was sent, unsolicited, by the Odalesque Press of 70 South Audley Street, London, W.1, to a citizen of Warwick.

The Attorney-General

This matter has already been referred to the Director of Public Prosecutions who has arranged for it to be investigated.

Mr. Smith

Could not the Attorney-General use his undoubted influence to bring about action to stop the indiscriminate posting of salacious and highly offensive material to very respectable citizens? Is he aware of the growing anger of the recipients of this material, who regard this as a complete exploitation of the permissive society?

The Attorney-General

I am very well aware of the anxiety, and action is being taken.
