Motion text

That this House deplores Channel Four's screening of Beijing Swings, a programme which featured an adult eating part of a dead unborn child; notes with incredulity the justification of the Chairman of Channel Four, Mr Vanni Treves, that the work of Zhu Yu entitled 'Eating People' had artistic merit; notes the further justification that the programme exemplifies the dark message of the season as a whole; and believing that the programme debased human dignity and plumbed new depths of depravity and indecency, calls for the criminal prosecution of those responsible for its transmission.
