Re: Parents have always let kids .....
" Did you even read the page you link to? The bit that says it is an offence
(1)Where a classification certificate issued in respect of a video work states that no video recording containing that work is to be supplied to any person who has not attained the age specified in the certificate, a person who supplies or offers to supply a video recording containing that work to a person who has not attained the age so specified is guilty of an offence unless the supply is, or would if it took place be, an exempted supply
The bit that says how you may get away with it
(a)that the commission of the offence was due to the act or default of a person other than the accused

My original entry, knowing that it was intended for the child, I could not use that defense."
Yes, I read it. You don't appear to be able to. Neither do the Trading Standards people advising you.
There's no need to "use that defence", because you haven't committed the offence they're prohibiting.
It say it's illegal to supply a DVD "to any person who has not attained the age specified in the certificate, a person who supplies or offers to supply a video recording containing that work to a person who has not attained the age so specified is guilty of an offence"
You wouldn't have done that. You'd have supplied it to the parent, who has attained the age.
I'm sorry you find this hard to understand, but the other similar prohibitions make it clear it's ALSO illegal to supply it to someone who is buying it on behalf of a minor.
This law doesn't.
Please point me to the part IN THE LAW that says it is. Please.
Who gives a shit if you can provide alcohol to a 16 year old in a pub? That's a separate exemption to the law, detailed in a part we're not discussing. What's the relevance?
Why don't you tell me the law on breaking and entering too, in an attempt to prove you don't know what the fuck you're talking about, regarding DVD sales?
