HC Deb 22 March 1923 vol 161 c2755
81. Mr. F. GRAY

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, having regard to the large contribution to the revenue through the entertainments by utility organisations, such as agricultural and horticultural societies, and by supporters of popular sport and entertainment, such as football and picture palaces, he will in his Budget proposals ensure that the supporters of the more exclusive sports, such as hunting and shooting, etc., shall contribute to the national revenue by imposing a tax upon the owners of packs of hounds by a tax upon cartridges, and by other appropriate taxation?


The hon. Member's suggestion has been noted.


Can the right hon. Gentleman say what would be the approximate cost of putting up turnstiles outside every fox covert in England?
