§ Mrs. Castle
asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware of the shortage of entertainment facilities for members of B.A.O.R. stationed outside the big German towns; and what steps he is taking to improve those facilities.
§ Mr. Lawson
My information is that there is not in fact a general shortage of entertainment facilities outside the big German towns which cannot be met by the provision of local and Service entertainments or by the provision of recreational transport to the nearest large centre. There are, however, some isolated units in outlying districts for which entertainment facilities are necessarily very restricted. But even in these cases at least one cinema show a week is normally provided.
