Pornography & Politics: The Williams Committee in Retrospect, London, Water- low Publishers, 1983. A. W. B. Simpson was part of the very respectable Home Office Departmental Committee on Obscenity and Film Censorship, better known as the Williams Commission (after its chairman, Bernard Williams), which studied, no doubt with a great deal of seriousness and attention to detail, the whole question of the political control of pornography for the British government of the day. Institutionally, the work of the committee corresponded in large part to two inquiries sponsored by the department of the solicitor general in the United States and the Canadian inquiry collectively called the Fraser Commission.
This example, which is by no means unique, comes from the program "Droit de parole," produced by the CBC French network Radio-Canada, and aired November 21, 1986.
