HC Deb 18 November 1926 vol 199 c1979W
Viscount SANDON

asked the Home Secretary whether he will take administrative or legislative steps to transfer the responsibility and payments of the British Board of Film Censors from the cinema trade to the Government, as in the case of other forms of censorship?


The change suggested could riot be made without legislation and, as I have stated in reply to previous questions on the subject, there is not sufficient evidence that the present system of censorship (which I would point out includes an important element of control by local authorities) fails to secure on the whole an adequate standard.
