HC Deb 25 January 1978 vol 942 c644W
Mrs. Dunwoody

asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether, in view of the fact that the Children's Film Foundation is not mentioned in the report on the Film Industrial Action Committee, he will now set up a special fund to promote children's firms, and to expand the work of the Children's Film Foundation in order to reach an even greater audience of children.

Mr. Meacher

The production of films by the Children's Film Foundation is at present supported financially by payments from the British Film Fund. The foundation has made representations to the Interim Action Committee that this method of financing should be reviewed, and I understand that the Committee is considering these representations. I would not wish to consider any changes in advance of any recommendations that the Interim Action Committee' might make.

Forward to
