This film is in two parts. The first part is of a protest rally outside Leeds Town Hall organised by the CPEA (Catholic Parents' and Electors' Association) against certain aspects of the Education Act of 1944 – the Agreed Syllabus and restricted state aid. The second part is of a visit to Leeds of Cardinal Griffin in 1947.
This is one of a collection of films made by the Selby Cine Club. This film provides a wonderful overview of the town of Selby as it was in 1965 and is accompanied by an interesting historical commentary. It shows pedestrians and traffic in the town centre, many of the shops, and includes the Toll Bridge, the Monday market, the Reverend John Kent giving a tour of the Abbey, the shipyard, the BOCM Mill, and a Council meeting.
