HC Deb 05 March 1940 vol 358 c224W
Sir A. Baillie

asked the Minister of Economic Warfare whether his attention has been called to the German drive to flood European markets with German cinematograph films; and whether he proposes to take any steps, in conjunction with the President of the Board of Trade, to ensure adequate competition from British films?

Sir A. Duncan

I have been asked to reply. The answer to the first part of the Question is in the negative. As regards the second part, my Department and the Department of Overseas Trade are always prepared to give every possible assistance to British films in foreign markets.
