§ 7. Mr. Day
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the discussions have now been completed with the various trade interests concerned in the proposed amendments necessary to carry out the recommendations made in the 176 report of the Committee on the Cinematograph Films Act, 1927; and, in view of the uncertainty that prevails in this industry, can he now make a statement on the Government's proposals?
On nth June I received representatives of the various trade interests and placed before them suggestions for their consideration. As soon as their comments have been considered, the Government will be in a position to reach a final decision.
I think I am right in saying that the Act does not come to an end till next March or April. We have clearly got that time-table in mind when we are thinking of the drafting of a Bill.
