§ Sir E. Graham-Little
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is aware that some hairdressers in the Borough of Fulham, particulars of whom have been submitted to him, are supplying contraceptives on the slot machine system; that some of them have advertisements of contraceptives in their shops; and if he will introduce legislation to prevent this practice.
§ Mr. Ede
The information which the hon. Members has given me does not suggest that the contraceptives are exhibited or advertised in an indecent or obscene manner. As previous experience shows any legislation to deal with the sale of contraceptives is very controversial and I can hold out no prospect of legislation on the lines he proposes.
