HC Deb 30 April 1929 vol 227 cc1397-9W

asked the Home Secretary if he is aware that, as stated

supported the application. Fuller details are given in the following table:

by the clerk to the Bedford County Council, no licence under the Cinematograph Act, 1909, is required in the case of the cinema at the Royal Air Force depot at Henlow, although civilians are permitted to attend on payment of the admission charge; and, in view of the fact that a condition of the issue of these licences by any licensing authority is that Home Office Regulations for securing the safety of the public are complied with, will he make inquiries into this case?


Yes, Sir. I understand that the premises in question are Crown property and are not subject to the provisions of the Cinematograph Act, 1909, and the Regulations made by the Secretary of State there under. I will communicate with the Air Council in regard to the safety precautions in operation in the cinema.
