§ Colonel DAY
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty how many naval ratings will be employed in the preparation and production of the film Falkland; and what extra remuneration, if any, will be received by the officers or men taking part in this film for their services?
§ Mr BRIDGEMAN
In reply to the first part, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply of 24th November (OFFICIAL REPORT, Cols. 383–4). As regards the second part, the present arrangement's do not provide that any extra remuneration will be received by anyone in the Naval service on account of the production of this film.
§ Colonel DAY
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether any general permits have been given to any cinematograph producing companies to make films of any incidents occurring in His Majesty's ships or on Admiralty property during the last two years; whether these permits have been granted to one or more companies, and what are the names of 2129W those companies; whether any payments, rents, or royalties are, or will be, paid for those permits and for privileges, and what is the amount of money involved; and if there has been, or will be, any interference with training, or any expense to the public incurred by the granting of such concessions?
§ Mr. BRIDGEMAN
The answer to the first part is in the negative. The remaining portions of the question, therefore, do not arise.
