HC Deb 07 April 1936 vol 310 cc2579-80
21. Mr. DAY

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the fact that the Cinematograph Films Act, 1927, was one that was passed for 10 years' duration and before the introduction of talking pictures, which has changed the whole cinema industry since the passing of that Act, he will state whether the Cinematograph Films Advisory Committee have made any representations or recommendations to him for the purpose of introducing legislation to meet the modern requirements in the cinema industry; and whether these recommendations will be placed before the committee recently appointed by him for their consideration?


I have received a report from the Cinematograph Films Advisory Committee recommending certain amendments in the Cinematograph Films Act, 1927, and this report will be available to the Departmental Committee which I appointed recently.


Have any further recommendations been made by the Advisory Committee, and will the right hon. Gentleman forward them to the Departmental Committee?


There is the fullest communication between the two committees.
