ELSPA responds to Brazier bill

The Entertainment and Leisure Software Publisher's Association has responded to a private member's bill presented by Julian Brazier MP

The Entertainment and Leisure Software Publisher's Association has responded to a private member's bill presented by Julian Brazier MP.

The proposed bill would provide for parliamentary scrutiny of senior appointments to the British Board of Film Classification and of the guidelines produced by it. It would also establish a body with powers to hear appeals against the release of videos and DVDs and the classification of works in prescribed circumstances.

"This Bill highlights the importance of the classification of the visual entertainment industry," the ELSPA said in a statement.

"The correct classification of computer games made for adult consumption - covered by the BBFC - is of the utmost importance to the computer games industry.

"For this reason ELSPA has recently taken time to give evidence to the Byron review and explain how children can best be protected both on and off line; now and in the future."

The ELSPA is requesting a meeting with Mr. Brazier to ensure that the bill takes their concerns into account.
