§ 13. Mr. Wakefield
asked the Prime Minister whether any steps are being taken in the interests of British propaganda to encourage the wider distribution abroad of British news-films; and, if so, whether, in view of the fact that this is to a large extent dependent on the adequate distribution of foreign and Dominion news-film in this country, he will take steps to secure the removal of the present restrictions under which British news-reel companies are compelled to restrict supplies of their films for exhibition in Great Britain to such places as are approved by the cinematograph theatre interests?
§ Mr. Butler
The answer to the first part is in the affirmative. The second part does not come within the purview of my Noble Friend.
