HC Deb 21 July 1953 vol 518 cc19-20W
78. Mr. Gaitskell

asked the Minister of Works on what basis the two companies who were given permission to film the Coronation ceremony were selected.

Sir D. Eccles

I understand that the Earl Marshal selected the three principal British news reel companies wishing to make a colour film. As the Minister responsible for the work in the Abbey I can say that there was no room for more than the number selected.
