HC Deb 05 July 1928 vol 219 c1586W

asked the Home Secretary whether a non-inflammable cinema film, satisfactory in other respects besides resistance to combustion, has yet been produced, which would make it feasible to consider prohibiting the use of any other than such non-inflammable film; and whether such a law is already in force in any continental country.


Such films have been on the market for some time and I am watching developments carefully, but I am satisfied that it would not be practicable at present to prohibit the use of the more inflammable films. So far as my information goes, the answer to the second part of the question is in the negative.
