HC Deb 28 February 1952 vol 496 cc174-5W
72. Mr. Gordon Walker

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what estimates he has made as to the extent to which the economies to be made by suppressing the departments in the Central Office of Information concerned with the making and distribution of films will be offset by the increased cost of making and distributing films by various Departments of State.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

I cannot give any figures at present, but it is the Government's intention to make a definite reduction in the scale on which Departments make use of films as a medium of publicity.
