§ 72. Mr. Reeves
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether steps will be taken to prevent the temporary closing down of film studios at Hammersmith, Twickenham and Southall of the. Alliance and Cromwell Film Company which are so urgently required to contribute to the production programme of British films.
§ Mr. H. Wilson
These studios are being temporarily closed because they need an overhaul and certain structural improvements. The work is not expected to last for more than about eight weeks at each studio, and the management hope by this means to increase the subsequent output of films.
