Thursday 1 December 2005 Possession of extreme pornographic material
Policy Watch #14
A response to the Home Office/Scottish Executive consultation on the possession of extreme pornographic material November 2005. 'Your paper makes the assumption that "there is considerable public concern about the availability of extreme pornographic material featuring adults". This is unproved and this consultation paper is the government’s response to lobbying from a small group of campaigners. In cases where criminal acts are undertaken the matter should be dealt with by the authorities appropriate to where the offence took place.'
