HC Deb 19 March 1958 vol 584 c155W
Dr. Summerskill

asked the Minister of Health 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 to protect the mental health of the public, liable to be endangered by the exhibition of scenes of violence.

Mr. Walker-Smith

I have seen Press reports about this. I do not think that any action is called for on my part, but I will watch the position.
