HC Deb 09 July 1957 vol 573 c24W
69. Mr. R. Harris

asked the Attorney-General if he will introduce legislation to provide that distributors of foreign publications and periodicals in England and Wales shall be exempted from responsibility for seeing that the contents comply with English law.

The Attorney-General

No; but my hon. Friend will appreciate that the amendment of the criminal law in this respect, which I assume is what he has in mind, is a matter for my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary.
