HC Deb 09 November 1943 vol 393 cc1101-2W
Mr. Wootton-Davies

asked the Secretary of State for War how many officers, non-commissioned officers and men in the Army are, at present, engaged upon entertainment and cinema duties; and what will be the contemplated establishment for the purpose of fulfilling these duties should the scheme now under consideration of the War Office for entertainment overseas be put into operation?

Sir J. Grigg

I regret that it is not in the public interest to give figures of strengths and establishments in the Army. As a general rule the Army personnel who are engaged on the distribution and exhibition of entertainment films perform similar duties in connection with training and educational films.
