asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to the issue of a circular letter through the post by a person or persons at Castleford, under the heading of the Parisian Medical Agency, advertising in particular appliances for birth control; and, having regard to the fact that such circular letter is accepted by the Post Office as printed matter, and thus transmitted in open envelopes, which, being addressed to the lady of the house in an open envelope, in many cases come under the observation of children, steps will be taken immediately to stop this outrage upon the views of many men and women in these matters, particularly of all those who are members of the Roman Catholic church?

I have obtained a copy of the circular to which the hon. Member apparently refers. I have no authority to take any action in the matter.
