asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he proposes to convene a conference on the causes of juvenile delinquency; and what film and television interests will be invited to send representatives.

On 29th November, with those of my colleagues concerned, I am holding a conference of leaders of the churches and of local government and representatives of other organisations closely concerned with the moral health and welfare of the community, and especially the upbringing and education of young people, to discuss the steps that might be taken to prevent delinquency and to promote better standards of conduct. The Cinema Consultative Committee, the British Broadcasting Corporation and the Independent Television Authority have been invited to send representatives to this conference, and to include among them representatives of some of the different cinema and television interests.
