§ 26. Mr. Day
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty the number of British warships now in course of construction that are being fitted with talking cinematograph apparatus and the number not so fitted; and what arrangements are made for the regular change of films during the time these warships are at sea?
All ships under construction above and including the category of gunboat are being fitted with equipment for sound reproduction for training and instructional purposes. This equipment will be suitable for the reproduction of sound films, and arrangements will be made to enable the ship's company to use it for cinematograph entertainment. Plans are now being made to provide a regular change of films.
