§ Mr. RHYS DAVIES
asked the Lord President of the Council what is the amount paid into the Cinematograph Fund to the latest available date; whether the grant of £5,000 to the British Film Institute is a special or an annual grant; and whether, although the Privy Council will not for the present be in a position to entertain other applications for assistance, they will in the future be able to do so?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
The amount paid into the Cinematograph Fund is £3,775. The Privy Council have authorised the payment of a grant of £5,000 to the British1140W Film Institute during 1934, but no decision has been reached with regard to the allocation of the fund in subsequent years, and I am not in a position to anticipate that decision.
