HC Deb 25 July 1938 vol 338 cc2722-3W
Mr. Leckie

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that of 77 British films viewed by the Ontario Board of Films Censors, 38, or nearly 50 per cent., had to be cut, while of 2,377 films from the United States of America viewed by the board, 439, or 18.3 per cent., needed censoring; and whether, with a view to increasing the demand for British-made films, he will take steps to ensure a higher standard than exists at present?

Mr. Cross

The attention of the film producers in this country has already been called to the recent report of the Ontario Board of Film Censors to which reference is made.
