HC Deb 28 July 1938 vol 338 cc3338-9W
Mr. Leckie

asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he will, in consultation with the Secretary of State for the Colonies, give favourable consideration to the revival of the film section of the late Empire Marketing Board, in view of the importance of making known the attractions and potentialities of the Empire to the people of Great Britain?

Lord Stanley

The film unit of the Empire Marketing Board was transferred to the service of the Post Office in 1933, and the Empire Film Library organised by the board is now controlled by the Imperial Institute. As regards the latter part of the question, I am glad to say that the Imperial Institute circulates Empire films without any charge save the recovery of postal expenses, to schools and societies of the United Kingdom possessing projectors.
