§ Mr. Day
asked the Home Secretary whether the Advisory Committee to be set up by his Department and the Secretary of State for Scotland to consider the Cinematograph Films Act of 1909 has yet been constituted; and will he give particulars of the same and their terms of reference?
§ Mr. Lloyd
The terms of reference will be:—"To be an Advisory Committee for the purposes of the administration of the Cinematograph Act, 1909." I hope it will be possible shortly to announce the constitution of the committee.
§ Mr. Day
asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the varying decisions that are arrived at by local licensing authorities throughout the country with regard to films that have in the first instance been refused an exhibition certificate by the British Board of Film Censors, he will consider arranging, when the amendments to the Cinematograph Films Act, 1927, are introduced by the Government, to provide for film producers or renters to have the right to appeal to his Department against the British Board of Film Censors' decisions instead of having to apply separately to the local licensing authorities of each town?
