§ 25. Mr. DAY
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether any formal Reports have been made to him by the Advisory Committee appointed under the Cinematograph Films Act, 1927, on the position in the cinematograph industry with reference to blind and block booking; and what action his Department has taken?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
No formal Report on the subject has been made by the Advisory Committee, but at the end of 1928, on their recommendation, a letter was written by the Board of Trade to the 234 Kinematograph Renters' Society and the Cinematograph Exhibitors' Association, drawing the attention of those bodies to the tendency that was stated to exist among some renters and exhibitors to ignore the requirements of Part I of the Act, and inviting their aid in ensuring that all their members were fully aware of the requirements and would co-operate in carrying them into effect.
