HC Deb 28 June 1965 vol 715 c32W
Mr. Chichester-Clark

asked the Lord President of the Council if, as part of Her Majesty's Government's plans to publicise the 700th anniversary of Parliament, they will commission a full-length documentary film, suitable for display on television and to schools and other institutions, of all the workings of the House of Commons.

Mr. Bowden

No, but sequences from the ceremony in Westminster Hall are included in a colour film produced by the Central Office of Information which also includes scenes in connection with the Commonwealth Prime Ministers' Meeting. This film will be available in all Commonwealth countries and I hope that arrangements can also be made, through the Central Film Library, for showings in schools and other institutions in this country. Photographic material about the Simon de Montfort Parliament and Magna Carta anniversaries, as displayed in the House of Commons Library, is on sale in this country.
