HC Deb 05 February 1952 vol 495 cc102-3W
57. Mr. G. Thomas

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what effects his proposed cuts in the Central Office of Information expenditure is anticipated to have on his Welsh office.

Mr. Butler

The staff of the Welsh Office of the Central Office of Information will be reduced from 33 to about 13 as a result of the decision to abolish the mobile film unit and lecture services and reduce the number of touring exhibitions. In addition, the possibility of securing further economies by transferring the Welsh, as well as other film libraries to the Central film library, is under consideration.
