Captain Wallace

I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."

This is a result of further consultation with the makers of news reels as to the best definition of "news reels" for insertion in the Bill. By limiting the definition in the way now proposed Clause 34 would exclude from the scope of the Act films which are simply and solely news films within the commonly accepted meaning of the term, and would allow everything else to come in.
