HC Deb 17 April 1946 vol 421 c453W
67. Mr. Boothby

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he wilt give an assurance that no priority facilities will be given to foreign companies to build film studios in this country over those accorded to British producers.

Mr. Marquand

I take it that the hon. Member has in mind the building of new studios. While I could not give an assurance that building licences will be reserved exclusively for British production and studio companies, it is our desire and intention to help in every way possible the healthy development of British production.
