§ 32. Mr. Remer
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will assure the House that, in the new legislation contemplated, the object of Government policy is to be the development of British film production in Great Britain rather than the development of American film production in Great Britain?
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade (Captain Euan Wallace)
The object of the proposed legislation will 16 be to encourage the production in Great Britain of films which conform to certain statutory requirements designed to ensure that they are preponderantly of British origin.
§ Captain Wallace
If that were the case, they would not conform to the statutory requirements necessary for the renters' quota, and would not count.
§ Mr. R. C. Morrison
Will the right hon. and gallant Gentleman also take steps to prevent the continued exploitation of the British film industry by certain financial interests in this country?
