§ 90. Mr. Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware of the concern felt by those connected with the cinema industry and various children's welfare and guidance organisations at his refusal to take the necessary action to form a National Children's Cinema Council; and whether he will reconsider this decision.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
No. A voluntary Consultative Cinema Committee was formed in 1952 comprising representatives of the British Board of Film Censors, the cinema industry and the local licensing authorities, with an advisory subcommittee including persons specially interested in the welfare of children. So far as I am aware, this machinery is generally considered to be satisfactory.
