asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether it was with his approval that the film, "Terminus", now being shown in London, included moving pictures of individual prisoners in handcuffs and close-ups of them in a railway carriage reserve for a Home Office party.

Permission was given to take long shots of an actual prison party, in which no individuals would be recognisable. But I am informed that no such shots were taken and that the whole scene was staged with professional actors.
