Salient. Victoria University Student Newspaper. Volume 36, Number 25. 3rd October 1973



Dear Sirs,

While watching Pat Bartlett et al on Gallery last week and listening to her reasons for censorship tribunals, the solution suddenly came to me! Make all New Zealanders members of the censorship tribunal. All members of the tribunal would have a period of say, six months, or a year to decide whether a book or film was indecent, and then a vote could be taken on whether to ban the book or film.

This system would be an excellent compromise between the liberals and the puritans.
