HC Deb 17 July 1963 vol 681 c52W
21. Mr. Woodburn

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is aware of the possibilities arising from recent developments in the use of eight millimetre films for educational purposes in reducing the cost and increasing the availability of film libraries usable economically by classes in school; and whether he will take steps to extend this scientific aid to all schools.

Lady Tweedsmuir

Yes. My Department is keeping in close touch with these developments, and Educational Films of Scotland, in consultation with the Department, are producing an experimental series of 8 mm. films in cassette form, specially designed for easy use in schools.
