People who sell DVDs and videos illegally, including pornography to children, cannot be prosecuted because of a legislative blunder dating back 25 years, it has emerged.
ENACTED by the Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same,
the then British Tory Government should have notified with the European Commission but failed to do so.
The error also went unnoticed when the laws were amended in 1993 and 1994.
The technicality means the act is unenforceable and urgent action is now under way to notify Europe and re-enact the legislation.
