HC Deb 29 October 1970 vol 805 c172W
78. Mr. Dempsey

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will amend the Obscene Publications Act so as to make it an offence to distribute pornographic literature to primary school children; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Carlisle

It is already an offence to distribute obscene material and the age of the recipients is relevant in determining whether the material is obscene.
