§ Mr. HOLFORD KNIGHT
asked the Under-Secretary of state for Air for what reasons facilities were refused to 48W a British film company for making a film, which was sponsored by the Imperial Air League, about the Indian air mail and the work of the Royal Air Force in guarding its routes?
§ Mr. MONTAGUE
My Noble Friend is opposed to the participation of officers and other ranks of the Royal Air Force, under orders, in the making of films which inevitably involve a pseudo-romantic and theatrical atmosphere entirely unsuited to their profession and traditions. No scenario as yet submitted to the Air Ministry, including that under reference, has been free from these drawbacks.
