HC Deb 26 November 1953 vol 521 cc524-5
55. Mr. Ian Harvey

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many recruiting films for Civil Defence have been produced since he took office.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

It is not the present policy to produce films for recruiting purposes, but since I have been responsible for Civil Defence two films have been produced to assist in the training of the Civil Defence Corps; a third is nearing completion, and others are under consideration.

Mr. Harvey

In view of the success of these films, will my right hon. and learned Friend bring his influence to bear to persuade the Government to change their policy in the use of films for this purpose?

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

I shall give the matter the active consideration which I always give to my hon. Friend's suggestions.
