HC Deb 05 August 1941 vol 373 c1795W
Mr. Sorensen

asked the President of the Board of Trade when the Cinematograph Films Council last met and when it is likely to meet again; why names of new members to replace retiring ones have not yet been announced; whether any nominations have been received from -trade bodies; whether he is aware that the chairman has declined to call a meeting although requested to do so by a member; and whether the chairman still draws the salary or remuneration of £500 per annum?

Sir A. Duncan

The Cinematograph Films Council last met on 27th February and will meet again as soon as it has been reconstituted. The names of new members have not been announced because membership of the new council is not yet complete. Nominations have been received from trade bodies and selections made. I am not aware that the chairman has recently refused any request by a member for a meeting to be called. The answer to the last part of the Question is in the affirmative.
