A 'GRUESOME and nauseating' exhibition of obscene material is being put on behind closed doors at the House of Commons later this month as part of a campaign for tougher anti-porn laws.

Ann Winterton, the Conservative MP for Congleton, said yesterday that the material - tapes, books, magazines and satellite and computer-generated pornography - was so horrific that at a private showing recently not one MP could endure viewing all the exhibits.

More than 300 MPs have accepted an invitation to the exhibition on 24 and 25 February, at which the Obscene Publications Squad of New Scotland Yard will provide them a briefing.

Mrs Winterton said: 'The material includes child abuse, bestiality, oral sex, both homosexual and heterosexual group and anal intercourse, and other violent and abnormal sexual behaviour. I was deeply shocked that such material is now increasingly available, largely because of the lack of political will to tackle the weakness of the Obscene Publications Act.

'The Act is a threadbare garment, woven in a different age, which can no longer provide the cloak of protection which women, men and children need against the most horrific, exploitative and damaging pornography.'
