HC Deb 12 June 1941 vol 372 cc367-8W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Minister of Information whether, for foreign use, he will consider the compilation of a film giving pictures before and after of famous places of purely antiquarian and archaeological interest which have been destroyed in enemy air attacks?

Mr. Cooper

I appreciate the hon. Member's suggestion but I am advised that it would not be possible to get a sufficiently wide distribution for such a film in foreign countries to make it worth while. As the hon. Member is doubtless aware steps have been taken to compile a pictorial record of damaged buildings and books and other publications on the subject will be issued from time to time.
