Dr Klugman (PROSPECT, NEW SOUTH WALES) asked the Minister representing the Attorney-General, upon notice:

(1)   Has the Minister's attention been drawn to a recommendation from the Anglican Synodin Melbourne that an expert committee of inquiry be set up to investigate the correlation, if any, between erotic material and adverse behaviour.

(2)   If so, will the Minister give effect to this recommendation.

Mr Enderby - The Attorney-General has provided the following answer to the honourable member's question:

(1)   Yes.

(2)   Results of overseas inquiries into the correlation between erotic material and adverse behaviour have been available to, and have been studied by me and officers of my Department. I have suggested that this would be a suitable subject for investigation by the Australian Institute of Criminology.
