HC Deb 18 December 1952 vol 509 cc235-6W
68. Mr. Blenkinsop

asked the Minister of Health what steps he is taking to ensure the exhibition of medical films made by his Department to hospital staffs and other professional groups, in view of the recent closing of the Central Office of Information travelling film unit.

Mr. Iain Macleod

Hospitals already have a number of projectors, and these are being augmented by an allocation from those formerly owned by the Central Office of Information. Boards and Committees can also hire or purchase others if required; and they have been encouraged to make them available as widely as possible in the service. Full information about the films which can be hired from the Central Film Library has been sent to them, to local authorities, to local medical bodies and to others concerned.
