HC Deb 16 July 1959 vol 609 c574
33. Mr. E. Fletcher

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he is taking to encourage increasing mutual trade in cinematograph films between this country and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

Sir D. Eccles

Films will be included in the scope of cultural discussions with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics which we hope will be held in the autumn under the terms of the annex to the communiqué issued after the Prime Minister's visit to Moscow.

Mr. Fletcher

Sir D. Eccles

It was agreed before I went that we should leave films, in which I am very interested, to this particular set of discussions.
