HC Deb 02 February 1939 vol 343 c388W
Mr. T. Smith

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is in a position to make a statement with regard to the resolution passed by the film-producers section of the Federation of British Industries, to the effect that British film producers think an increase in quotas is necessary for the saving of the British film production industry?

Mr. Stanley

I understand that the Cinematograph Films Council are considering representations from the Film Producers Association and others regarding the quotas under the Cinematograph Films Act. Under that Act, the quotas can be varied in certain circumstances after consideration by the Council.
