asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he will lay before Parliament his proposals for the designation of persons to act as the authority responsible for making arrangements for the classification of video works under the Video Recordings Act 1984; and if he will make a statement.

[pursuant to his reply, 11 June, 1985, c. 389–90]: I have today laid before both Houses of Parliament revised proposals for the designation under section 4(1) of the Video Recordings Act 1984 of those persons who on designation will be the authority responsible for the matters set out in that section of the Act. I now propose to designate the Earl of Harewood, the Lord Birkett, and Miss Monica Sims, respectively the president and vice-presidents of the British Board of Film Classification (formerly the British Board of Film Censors).
