HC Deb 06 December 1926 vol 200 cc1675-6W

asked the President of the Board of Trade what preferences are given in Empire markets overseas to cinema films, photographic films, and other celluloid or cellulose products if manufactured in Great Britain?


The preferences given in the chief parts of the Empire overseas to cinematograph films made in Great Britain (and elsewhere in the Empire) are summarised in paragraph 4 of the Report of the Imperial Conference on the Exhibition of Empire Cinematograph Films which is published at pages 550–1 of the "Board of Trade Journal" for 25th November last. The other products mentioned in the question cover a wide range of articles, and perhaps my hon. Friend will be so good as to let me know what particular articles and what particular parts of the Empire he has in mind.
