HC Deb 31 July 1951 vol 491 c165W
72. Mr. Mikardo

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will refer to the Monoply Commission the restrictive practices of the Newsreel Association of Great Britain and Ireland, Limited, who have threatened to boycott any films taken by the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company unless the oil company undertake to supply their films exclusively to members of the Newsreel Association.

Mr. Rhodes

My right hon. and learned Friend will be prepared to consider the supply of news films as a possible subject for reference to the Commission when he comes to select further references, but hon. Members will realise that there will be a lot of other important subjects to consider at the same time.
