HC Deb 17 November 1938 vol 341 cc1073-4W
Mr. T. Morris

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department what expenditure is contemplated upon the film illustrative of Great Britain that is to be shown at the New York fair next year; and what persons are to be responsible for its production?

Mr. R. S. Hudson

The question of the films to be shown in the cinema theatre in the British Pavilion at the New York World's Fair is under consideration by my Department, which is in close consultation with the Joint Film Committee of the British Council and the Travel Association; the committee has undertaken to co-ordinate the selection of films for display. It is not possible at this stage to furnish an estimate of the expenditure involved.
