HC Deb 07 February 1929 vol 224 c1947
61. Captain CAZALET

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether there are any official arrangements for the preservation of films which are of national or historic importance and interest?


Arrangements are made for the preservation of films produced at the instance of Government Departments. A list of such films is included in an answer given on 16th February, 1927, to the hon. Member for Blackpool (Sir W. de Frece), of which I am sending a copy to the hon. and gallant Member. There are no arrangements for the acquisition and preservation of privately-produced films.
