The answer to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative. Before the recent intensification of hostilities, the Ministry of Information had commissioned 60 films of various kinds and were helping a number of film production companies by the grant of facilities and official approval. Some of the films commissioned were inappropriate to the present crisis and have been temporarily abandoned, but it is hoped that others of a more suitable character will take their place. Further plans for dealing with the present situation are now under consideration.
