§ 57. Sir H. BRITTAIN
asked the President of the Board of Education whether any effort is being made to collect and safeguard films of historical interest; if so, where are they being stored; and what, approximately, is the number collected?
§ Mr. McNEILL
No attempt is being made to form a continuous collection of films of historical interest, though my hon. Friend will see from the reply given on the 16th February last to my hon. Friend the Member for Blackpool (Sir W. de Frece) that the list of films in the possession of Government Departments includes a number of war films and one or two other films which might be regarded as of historical value.
§ Sir H. BRITTAIN
Can anything be done to develop that system? It does not seem to do very much for posterity.
