HC Deb 01 February 1956 vol 548 cc124-5W
Mr. Shepherd

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he has yet made a decision about the quota of British films to be shown by exhibitors during the year beginning 1st October, 1956.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

Yes. After consulting the Cinematograph Films Council I have decided not to make any Order this year to amend the Cinematograph Films (Quotas) Amendment Order, 1950, but to leave the prescribed quotas at 30 per cent. for first-feature films and 25 per cent. for the supporting programme, for the exhibitors' quota year beginning 1st October, 1956.
