Cinemas and Censorship. The next item was to consider Mr. T. Mansel Franklen's letter, together with the model conditions for cmema. licences issued by the Home Office. The letter referred to a communica- tion from the Secretary of State ex- plaining that it had been found im- practicable to proceed with the Govern- men censorship of films owing to the opposition on the part of the trade. Model conditions had, however, been I prepared for the approval of the licens- ing authorities. These conditions in- j eluded: (1) That no film be shown which 1 was likely to be injurious to morality, or an incitement to crime; neither should pictures of an offensive nature to public persons be shown. (2) That no film be shown unless a synopsis of same be submitted to the licensing authority, and if deemed necessary the film iself must be shown to any person film iself must be shown to any person or persons appointed by the Council. Rev. Geo. Neighbour remarked that the Government had failed to pass a measure dealing with the subject. That being so, would it not be better to leave the matter alone rather than adopt some local treasuresWho was going to act as censor in a district like this r Mr. Brtiee Jones agreed, and pointed out that action had been taken locally in curtailing the hours which children could attend Cinemas. No steps should be taken which did not apply to the whole of the country. Mr. Charles Maddox pointed out the impracticability of some of the con- ditions, especially one which required a film to be shown to the appointed per- son two or three days before it was shown to the public. Films did not arrive till the day they were actually shown to the public. Mr. W. Lamburn moved that the whole matter be adjourned and that a joint conference be arranged between the Council and local Cinema managers. Mr. Thos. Jones moved that the model conditions be adopted, and Mr. Hogers seconded. After further discussion, in the course of which it was urged that films should be censored at the source and not in the districts where they are .,hoii-n, Mr. Lamburn's motion was agreed to; also another motion that Merthyr, Pontypridd, Aberdare, and Mountain Ash Authorities meet to discuss the matter with the view of taking uniform action.
