9. Mr. K. Robinson

asked the President of the Board of Trade what was the cost of dollar imports of film base and coated cinematograph film for the years 1947 and 1948.

Mr. H. Wilson

The value of imports of photographic and cinematograph film base from the U.S.A. in 1947 and 1948 was £1.6 million in each year; there were no imports from other dollar countries. Imports of unexposed sensitised cinematograph film from the U.S.A. were valued at £75,000 in 1947 and £117,000 in 1948. Imports from other dollar countries were negligible.
