– in the House of Commons on 22nd March 1934.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will now consider the increase of the British requisite in the quota of cinematograph films for public exhibition?
I cannot see my way to adopt my hon. and learned Friend's suggestion for the amendment of the Cinematograph Films Act.
May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he cannot reconsider the quota of our cinematograph films, not merely as regard footage, but as regard quality; in other words, the cost of production?
I will look into the suggestion; I cannot promise more than that.
