HC Deb 23 July 1929 vol 230 cc1059-60
15. Mr. DAY

asked the President of the Board of Trade the number of resignations or alterations that have occurred in the advisory committee appointed by his Department according to the provisions of the Cinematograph Films Act since this committee has been set up; and whether, in filling up the vacancies that have occurred, he has taken into consideration the claims put forward for representation on this committee by any other association in addition to the Cinematograph Exhibitors' Association?


Four members of the advisory Committee have resigned since it was set up. No vacancies have occurred this year, and therefore it has not been my duty to make fresh appointments.


May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether other associations besides the Cinematograph Association will be consulted if it is necessary to make these appointments?


Yes, if any vacancy arises, I will certainly consider representations made by anyone.
