§ Mr. Bossom
asked the Minister of Information whether there were any expenses incurred above the normal operational charges in the production of the film "Target For To-night"; and, if so, what was the amount, and how much has been received from the various cinemas to date which have exhibited the film?
§ Mr. Thurtle
Substantial expenses were incurred by the Ministry of Information in the production of this film. Distribution of the film is not nearly completed, and up to date the distributors have not sent in their accounts or their payments. My hon. Friend may, however, assume that in regard to this particular film the receipts will be substantially greater than the expenses.
