HC Deb 07 May 1928 vol 217 c50W

asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he has yet made any attempt to stimulate emigration from industrial areas where there is a high degree of unemployment to countries within the Empire by means of free exhibitions of instructional cinema films depicting life and conditions in the Dominions and Colonies; and, if not, will be consider the advisability of making the experiment?


Cinematograph films are being used for educational purposes by the Overseas Settlement Office (in cooperation with the Ministry of Labour), by the Dominion Governments, and by the Canadian Railway Companies.
