To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects to announce the appointment of the Vice-President of the British Board of Film Classification. [33146]

Mr. Michael

The principal officers of the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) are appointed by the BBFC' s Council of Management in consultation with my right hon. Friend, who is responsible under the Video Recordings Act 1984 for designating the authority for classifying video works. The Council of Management has recently advertised two vice presidential posts and will announce any appointments in due course.
