HC Deb 05 May 1964 vol 694 c136W
10. Mr. Hopkins

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will increase the number of Customs Officers engaged in examining imported literature, and thereby prevent the import of pornographic literature.

Mr. M. Macmillan

No. The figures show that Customs seizures have done a great deal to limit this traffic. Moreover matter which may have escaped the Customs net is still subject to police action under the Obscene Publications Act.
