§ 73 and 74. Mr. Silvester
asked the President of the Board of Trade (1) whether he will give an assurance that he will retain the National Film Finance Corporation as an agency of support for the British film industry;
(2) whether, in order to assist the forward planning of independent British films upon which his policy has a direct bearing, he will publish his proposals for the future development of the National Film Finance Corporation in advance of his more extensive legislative proposals on the film industry; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody
Consideration of the future of the N.F.F.C. is a major element in the Government's current review of films legislation. It is not, therefore, possible to make a statement on this subject while the review is in progress.
