HC Deb 08 March 1934 vol 286 cc2020-1W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education the number of schools which are at the present time using films for educational purposes; whether education committees invariably obtain the sanction of the board for this innovation; and whether this sanction has ever been refused?


My Noble Friend regrets that he has insufficient information to enable him to answer the first two parts of the question. With regard to the last part of the question, of those cases in which the board have been consulted, in only two instances has sanction been withheld; in those cases the board suggested, for various reasons, that consideration of the provision of cinematograph apparatus should be deferred.
