§ 9. Mr. MANDER
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will consider introducing legislation to amend the Cinematograph Films Act, 1927, with a view to the more effective attainment of its object by increasing the quota on distributors of 25 per cent. of British product, while removing it altogether from the exhibitor and taking off all restrictions as to what shall be a British picture except that it shall be 75 per cent. produced in the United Kingdom by British subjects or by a British company; and that at least £12,000 must be spent upon such a picture?
§ Mr. W. R. SMITH
As my right hon. Friend has already stated, no hope of fresh legislation on this subject in the near future can be held out.
§ Mr. MANDER
In view of the unsatisfactory nature of the reply, I wish to give notice that I shall raise this matter on the Adjournment at an early date.
