Senator WHEELDON (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - 1 ask the Minister for Customs and Excise: What is the reason for the ban on the showing in Australia of the film 'Pretty Poison' which has been highly praised by well-known overseas critics? As the film has been freely distributed in New Zealand - 1 hope 1 will nol shock the Minister unduly by admitting to him that I saw it there - would he inquire from the responsible Minister in the New Zealand Government whether the showing of this film in that country has been followed by a perceptible increase in crime or a decline in morals?
