HC Deb 27 March 1950 vol 473 c39
62. Mr. Kenneth Robinson

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has received the report of the British High Commissioner in Germany regarding the showing of the film, "Titanic," in the American zone; and what further action he proposes to take.

Mr. Ernest Davies

Yes, Sir, and the matter is at present under consideration in Germany.

Mr. Robinson

Is my hon. Friend aware of the widespread concern in this country at the showing of this blatant anti-British film in the American zone of Germany, and will he persuade his right hon. Friend to take early action on it?

Mr. Davies

We are aware of the resentment that has been caused. I can assure my hon. Friend that we are actively considering this matter, and I hope a decision will be reached in the very near future.

Mr. Langford-Holt

While His Majesty's Government are actively considering this matter, can the hon. Gentleman tell us how many persons daily are seeing this film?
