HC Deb 20 February 1933 vol 274 c1455W

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department if he is aware that facilities have been granted to an American firm to demonstrate portable cinema apparatus at the Birmingham section of the British Industries Fair; and will he state the reason for this departure from the established practice?

Lieut.-Colonel COLVILLE

I think the hon. Member's question is based on a misapprehension. I have made inquiries and find that no such facilities have been granted. The facts are that an exhibitor proposed to display an industrial film in connection with his exhibit by means of a foreign projector. He has since, however, decided to use one of British make.
