HC Deb 09 November 1943 vol 393 cc1068-9
33. Mr. Hewlett

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the latest films are shown to the troops overseas; whether there is any difficulty in obtaining them; and what are the financial arrangements for their use?

Sir J. Grigg

Films are made available without any difficulty for exhibition to troops overseas as soon as they are ready for exhibition to the general public. The films are hired from renters for a very reasonable sum. No charges are made for admission of Service personnel except at certain static cinemas.
