HC Deb 01 June 1916 vol 82 c2910

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in the event of entertainments being given in aid of the blinded heroes' fund or for other similar funds, and the musicians arranging for the payment of their fees on the understanding that such fees shall be subsequently paid over as a donation to the fund, the payment of such fees will be reckoned as ordinary expenses and the funds rendered liable to the Entertainments Tax?


The answer is in the affirmative, but the obvious course to adopt in the circumstances is for the musicians to give their services free.
