HC Deb 02 December 1982 vol 33 c286W
Mr. Wardell

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will set up a study into the psychological effect on young children of watching home video films of an adult category.

Mr. Mayhew

We are not satisfied that such a study would produce reliable results, even if it were possible to undertake it without incurring risks to the children themselves. We are aware, however, of the general concern of the possible effects of the material referred to by the hon. Member and we will keep the matter under close review.
