§ 16. Mr. Mayhew
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he now proposes to set up a Government film unit to provide topical news and feature material for overseas television services.
§ The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (Dr. Charles Hill)
This possibility is under consideration by the Central Office of Information in relation to the production programme for the financial year 1961–62.
§ Mr. Mayhew
The Minister assured me some little time ago that it was under consideration. Would he not agree that there is a definite gap in our overseas information service and that the sooner it is filled the better?
