HC Deb 18 March 1958 vol 584 c127W
Dr. Summerskill

asked the Postmaster-General whether he has considered the statement made by spokesmen of the workers in television and the cinema regarding the increasing amount of violence depicted, a copy of which has been sent to him; and what action he proposes to take under Article 15 (4) of the British Broadcasting Corporation Licence and Agreement and Section 9 (2) of the Television Act, 1954.

Mr. K. Thompson
