§ Rear-Admiral Beamish
asked the President of the Board of Trade the present 168W situation in regard to the supply of films for photographic dealers; and whether arrangements can be made for priority for serving men's families to obtain such films as are available?
§ Mr. Dalton
The demands for photographic film for essential war requirements are very heavy, but as large supplies as the circumstances allow have been allocated to photographic dealers and photographers. I do not think it would be practicable to reserve a first call on these trade supplies for serving men's families, but I have made arrangements for extra supplies of film to be made to the Y.M.C.A. under their scheme for the photographing by amateur photographers of the relatives of serving men.
