HC Deb 26 February 1952 vol 496 cc117-8W
51. Dr. Stross

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether in view of the volume of protest against the decision to close down the Crown Film Unit, he will reconsider the whole matter.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The need for reduction in Government expenditure makes it essential to reduce substantially the production and distribution of films by the Government. In these circumstances I regret that the answer to the last part of the Question must be in the negative.
