HC Deb 06 April 1971 vol 815 c108W
73. Sir G. Nabarro

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will institute proceedings on grounds of obscenity against the publishers and others concerned with the Little Red School Book, translated into English from the Danish language; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Maudling

I have no responsibility for the enforcement of the law, which is a matter for the police, advised as necessary by the Director of Public Prosecutions. I understand that copies of this book have been seized by the police under a warrant issued under Section 3 of the Obscene Publications Act, 1959. The matter is nowsub judice.
