MPs debate 'violent' video game


Two Labour MPs have posed questions in the House of Commons ahead of the high-profile launch of videogame Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Labour MP Keith Vaz, who has strongly criticised the new game, questioned Minister for Creative Industries Siôn Simon on protecting children from its "violent" content.

Another Labour MP, Tom Watson, has defended the game and spearheaded a Facebook group to help defend games from critics.
