Murder On The Streets Computer Game

EDM number 564 in 1996-97, proposed by Ronnie Campbell on 20/02/1997.

That this House calls upon the Home Secretary to take immediate action to ban the sale of the computer game comic Armageddon, Murder on the Streets; expresses deep concern that the company SCJ based in Battersea, should wish to have been involved in the sale and distribution of a game in which the player drives a car and is awarded points based on the number of pedestrians he or she can kill or maim; and urges the Home Secretary not only to ban the game but to introduce legislation preventing games of such an offensive and nauseating nature being made.

This motion has been signed by a total of 33 MPs.
