HC Deb 20 March 1952 vol 497 c246W
Mr. Shepherd

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will make a statement about the exhibitors' film quota for the year beginning 1st October, 1952.

Mr. P. Thorneyeroft

After consulting the Cinematograph Films Council, I do not propose to make any Order this year to amend the Cinematograph Films (Quotas) Order. This means that the prescribed quotas will remain at 30 per cent. for first-feature films and 25 per cent. for supporting programmes for the exhibitors' quota year beginning 1st October, 1952.
