HC Deb 29 July 1918 vol 109 cc75-6W
Sir J. D. REES

asked the President of the Board of Education whether the word "entertainment" in the Amendment he accepted to Sub-section (2), paragraph (3), of the Education Bill includes cinemas; and whether, thereunder, licences will be issued to children engaged in the production of cinema films?


Paragraph (3) of Sub-section (2) of Clause 13 relates to licences to take part in any entertainment or series of entertainments to take place in premises licensed according to law for public entertainments or in any circus or in any place of amusement to which the public are admitted for payment for the purpose of singing, playing, or performing or being exhibited for profit or offering anything for sale. It would be a question of fact whether any particular cinematograph entertainment falls within this description.
