HC Deb 06 March 1952 vol 497 c76W
103. Brigadier Medlicott

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if, in relation to the proposed Bill to extend the provisions of the Cinematograph Act, 1909, to exhibitions of noninflammable films, he will take into account the special position of village cinemas, both static and mobile, and will make such exemptions as are reasonable having due regard to the safety of the public.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

It is the intention that the general standards of safety required at cinema exhibitions where only non-inflammable film is used should be laid down in regulations made under the Bill; there will be full consultation with all the interests concerned before the regulations are made.
