§ 10. Mr. DAY
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the difficulty exhibitors in the cinematograph industry are experiencing in obtaining a sufficient supply of good British silent films to comply with the quota conditions of the Cinematograph Films Act, 1927, he will consider the introduction of a short Bill to repeal this Act?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. William Graham)
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to the same question asked by the hon. and gallant Member for Bethnal Green, North East (Major Nathan) on 14th April.
§ Mr. GRAHAM
I have often informed the House that these are controversial matters, and are considered from time to time by the Advisory Committee, but I have also told the House that I cannot promise amending legislation under existing conditions.
