HC Deb 22 July 1968 vol 769 c15W
62. Mr. Roebuck

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will introduce legislation to make it a criminal offence to send money abroad to persons convicted of serious crimes as payment for autobiographical material related to their crimes.

Mr. Harold Lever

No. Legislation of the kind suggested would be very difficult to enforce, and would be an interference with the freedom of the Press.
