HC Deb 08 March 1938 vol 332 cc1699-700
30. Mr. H. G. Williams

asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether his attention has been drawn to the Copyright Amendment Bill now before the Canadian Parliament; and, in view of the apprehension created among composers of music in this country; whether he will obtain a copy of the Bill and place it in the Library of this House?

Mr. M. MacDonald

Yes, Sir. I have arranged for a copy of the Canadian Copyright Amendment Bill to which my hon. Friend refers to be placed in the Library of the House.

Mr. Williams

Would my right hon. Friend consult with the President of the Board of Trade as to the possible effect of this Measure upon British publishers of music, should it become law?

Mr. MacDonald

Yes, Sir.
