HC Deb 10 February 1908 vol 183 c1373
MR. BOTTOMLEY (Hackney, S.)

To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider the expediency of imposing a tax upon theatre and other entertainment tickets, as is at present done in various Continental countries.

(Answered by Mr. Asquith.) Yes, Sir. This, like all other suggestions which I receive on the subject of taxation, shall have my most careful consideration.
