HC Deb 05 April 1933 vol 276 c1754
17 and 18. Mr. ROBINSON

asked the Lord President of the Council (1) how much money has been paid into the Cinematograph Fund; and what proportion of that amount it is intended to hand over to the Film Institute;

(2) How much money has been accumulated up to date in the hands of exhibitors and available for the Cinematograph Fund?

The LORD PRESIDENT of the COUNCIL (Mr. Baldwin)

The amount paid into the Cinematograph Fund is £16 3s. 4d., but I have no information as to the sum that has been accumulated in the hands of exhibitors for transmission to the fund. No grant from the fund to the Film Institute or any other body has been authorised.
