The hon. Gentleman's suggestion that we are not carrying out the Act is either based on misinformation on the facts or a misunderstanding of the statute. The position is that the question whether a prosecution is or is not to be instituted is for the Board of Trade and for the Board of Trade alone. There is a question under Section 13 of the 1938 Act on which we do seek the advice of the Films Council, and that has been done.
