Hanan expressed strong disapproval of certain pictures | being shown in the kinema theatres* 'and of the too frequent attendance of children at such shows. "I regret to say," said the Minister, "that I am receiving complaints against some of the pictures being shown in certain parts, of this country. These pictures are of a debasing character, and there is no doubt that such pictures exercise a baneful influence on juvenile minds. The influence of these pictures

cannot but lead, to some extent, to moral wreeKage.'V Mr Hanan said he had drawn .the attention of the Minister of Internal Affairs to the need for more effective control, and he hoped that Mr Riissell would support him in the' matter. '.„-'•' The Minister expressed the hope that the legislation dealing . with juvenile labour to be brought down next session would also deal with the too frequent attendance of young children at picture^ shows.
