HC Deb 17 June 1930 vol 240 cc47-8W

asked the Under-Secretary of state for Air for what reasons facilities were refused to 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?


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.
