§ 70. Commander Noble
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury how much has been spent on films by the Central Office of Information during the past year; and what percentage is this of the total amount spent by that Office.
§ Mr. Glenvil Hall
The total expenditure on the production and distribution of films by the Central Office of Information from 1st October, 1946, to 30th September, 1947, including staff, was about £923,000. This was about 25 per cent. of the gross expenditure of the Central Office. This includes all the costs of non-theatrical showings in this country.
