§ 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.
