HC Deb 25 March 1952 vol 498 c36W
Dr. King

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware of the continued inadequacy of entertainment for Her Majesty's Forces in Korea; and whether he will take steps to improve such entertainment.

Mr. Head

As I have stated in the House on several recent occasions, all troops in Korea will be able to see a new live entertainment show each month from now onwards. These arrangements extend to September, and plans are now being made to continue these shows in the winter months. Every soldier should now be able to see at least two cinema shows a week, so far as operations allow, and there are enough films to enable most of the cinemas to make four changes of programme each week. I do not, therefore, consider the present scale of entertainment to be inadequate, but we will make improvements where we can.
