40. Mr. Swingler

asked the President of the Board of Trade what approaches Her Majesty's Government have so far received from European countries to enter into treaties to enable co-production films to be made jointly with film producers in Great Britain, as provided for in the Films Act, 1960; and on what date he expects the first co-production treaty to be signed.
