asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is his policy towards the public display of indecent material.

We fully recognise, as did the Committee on Obscenity and Film Censorship, the public desire not to be offended by the display and availability of such material.

Friend the Member for Peterborough (Dr. Mawhinney).
