asked the Home Secretary if he can give a report on the work of the Consultative Committee on Cinematograph Productions for 1932 up to the most convenient date, with the number of meetings held; whether these have been public or private; and whether any statement can be published showing the nature of the work accomplished and the results of the control or representations of this body?

Since the beginning of 1932 the Film Censorship Consultative Committee have held seven meetings. All these meetings have been private. I understand that the committee propose to submit to me shortly their recommendations on the questions which they have had under consideration at these meetings. I am unable to make any statement at present.

Can the right hon. Gentleman assure the House that this committee considers from time to time the posters issued in connection with cinematograph edvertisements?
