66. Mr. Swingler

asked the President of the Board of Trade the total attendances at cinemas in the financial year 1954–55; and how this figure compares with those for 1953–54 and 1952–53.

Mr. Kaberry:

Figures for total attendances at cinemas are not yet available for the first quarter of 1955. Admissions for the calendar year 1954 were 1,276 million, compared with 1,285 million in 1953 and 1,312 million in 1952.
