§ 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.
