§ 27. Captain CUNNINGHAM-REID
asked the Home Secretary if his attention has been drawn to a recent prosecution at Ramsgate in which it was held that the provisions of the Cinematograph Act, 1909, did not apply to a performance given before 70 children in a room 12 feet by 527 13 feet lined with matchboard because the film itself was non-inflammable; and whether he proposes legislation to strengthen the Cinematograph Act so as to cover cinematograph performances for which money is taken?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. I have under consideration the question of introducing amending legislation to deal with the matter.
