HC Deb 30 November 1933 vol 283 cc1062-3W

asked the Lord President of the Council how much money has been received to date from allocations under the Sunday Entertainments Act for the benefit of the National Film Institute; and what has been accomplished by the latter organisation?


I assume that my hon. and gallant Friend refers to the sums received by the Cinematograph Fund, which amount to £2,480 12s. 2d. I would point out, however, that the Sunday Entertainments Act does not restrict payments from the fund to any specified body, and I am unable to give him the information he desires with regard to the British Film Institute to which no grant has been made.
