Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill: Clause 1. — (Extension of Period for Making Loans.) (3 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: The hon. Gentleman is generally very fair to me, I admit, but he has omitted entirely the fact that I said that I did not propose to repeat what was said by the Minister on Second Reading. The case and the policy were deployed by my right hon. Friend, and he also gave the reasons why what had been said originally by the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Huyton (Mr. H. Wilson) about the...

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill: Clause 1. — (Extension of Period for Making Loans.) (3 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: My right hon. Friend explained quite clearly, in his speech in introducing this Measure, that it extended the lending powers for three years, and he gave reasons for it. He also pointed out that it did not extend at all the figure which they were empowered to borrow, and the hon. Gentleman can make his own deductions from that. We believe that it is right to commend the extension of these...

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill: Clause 1. — (Extension of Period for Making Loans.) (3 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: The hon. Member for Cheetham (Mr. H. Lever) thought that if he repeated often enough that a great many relevant questions had been asked and not answered someone was, sooner or later, through the fact of his repeating it, likely to believe him. The fact is that if I did not answer on his previous Amendment a lot of questions that had been asked on Second Reading, it was either because they...

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill: Clause 1. — (Extension of Period for Making Loans.) (3 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: Another question was, he said, if I remember correctly, about the cost. He brushed aside the obvious answer. He said, "I do not mean anything revealed in the annual report," as though that was perfectly valueless. But it is not perfectly valueless. The right hon. Member for Huyton (Mr. H. Wilson), in what I thought was meant to be an outburst of generosity, said that no doubt I did not know...

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill: Clause 1. — (Extension of Period for Making Loans.) (3 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: The question of cost arises on the next Clause. If the hon. Member will read paragraph 5 of the Explanatory and Financial Memorandum, he will know why I have not given an estimate. That arises on the next Clause and not on this one. If, in fairness to my right hon. Friend and myself, the Committee will bear in mind that we have stated the powers of the Corporation and the purpose for which we...

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill: Clause 1. — (Extension of Period for Making Loans.) (3 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: I have told the hon. Member over and over again that the figures in the Annual Report of the Corporation are not, as he suggests, valueless.

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill: Clause 1. — (Extension of Period for Making Loans.) (3 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: The hon. Gentleman has said again and again that he asked me whether the Corporation was entitled to lend money not expecting to get a penny back. Not only did I answer that question, but I drew the attention of the hon. Member to the terms of the Act. I will read the relevant words again. Some hon. Members attempt to do justice to a Minister's reply. I resent this constant repetition of an...

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill: Clause 1. — (Extension of Period for Making Loans.) (3 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: I am reading the document to which I referred in winding up the Second Reading debate, namely, the principal Act, which we are here amending. The hon. Gentleman will find the words in section 1 (1,b). The terms are: …financing the production or distribution of cinematograph films to persons who, in the judgment of the Corporation, while having reasonable expectations of being able to...

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill: Clause 1. — (Extension of Period for Making Loans.) (3 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: May I point out that his hon. Friend said that I did not give the hon. Gentleman that answer in winding up on Second Reading and that I was quoting it for the first time then. Any hon. Member in the Committee who is interested and will look at Hansard for 25th November will find that I read out the whole thing in columns 455–6. To say, as the right hon. Gentleman does, that my recent...

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill: Clause 2. — (Power to Enter into Arrangementswith Respect to Certain Loans.) (3 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: I will give to the hon. Member for South Ayrshire (Mr. Emrys Hughes) the information which it was not convenient to give after his previous speech. That is that the film in which he is particularly interested was not financed by this Corporation and has nothing to do with this Measure.

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill: Clause 2. — (Power to Enter into Arrangementswith Respect to Certain Loans.) (3 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: I hope to have an interesting conversation with the hon. Gentleman about that at some time, but what he says has nothing to do with this Bill. Let me say at once to the hon. Member for Cheetham (Mr. H. Lever), who moved this Amendment, and to the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Huyton (Mr. H. Wilson), who supported it, that as the latter indeed supposes there were certain considerations...

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill: Clause 2. — (Power to Enter into Arrangementswith Respect to Certain Loans.) (3 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: We have every intention of replying to the debate when the hon. Gentleman sits down, but I am not going to encourage him to go on by intervening in his speech.

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill: Clause 2. — (Power to Enter into Arrangementswith Respect to Certain Loans.) (3 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: That gives me a hope. The hon. Member constantly speaks as though the £3 million debt of British Lion would be decided by somebody round a table, without any documents being carefully considered or anything of the sort. I can give him an absolute assurance that before an arrangement is made between the Corporation and British Lion—which would certainly have consequences under subsection...

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill: Clause 2. — (Power to Enter into Arrangementswith Respect to Certain Loans.) (3 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: I thought I had dealt with the point in answering the hon. Gentleman, but when the right hon. Gentleman says that an hour has been spent owing to an obstinate refusal to concede this Amendment, let me give again the reason why I advised the Committee not to accept this Amendment. I explained that I had some sympathy with what I thought was the idea behind it and I explained why the Amendment...

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill: Clause 2. — (Power to Enter into Arrangementswith Respect to Certain Loans.) (3 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: If I say we will consult with the Treasury, I think that the hon. Member knows enough to know that that is normally followed by agreement.

Orders of the Day — Cinematograph Film Production (Special Loans) Bill: Clause 2. — (Power to Enter into Arrangementswith Respect to Certain Loans.) (3 Dec 1953)

Mr Henry Strauss: Because I do not accept it as an addition here in every case. I said in my original speech more than an hour ago that where an arrangement under subsection (1) will clearly lead to a sequel under subsection (2), as it undoubtedly will in the case of British Lion, then of course the arrangement will not be made until the Treasury and the Board of Trade agree that it shall be made. Of course I...
