§ 47. Mr. SHAKESPEARE
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that a demand for Corporation Duty has recently been made from the Norfolk County Cricket Club; that the total assets of the Club are 17 small tents, two cricket nets, 22 yards of cocoanut matting, and a few Treasury bonds; and whether, in his Budget, he will consider the abolition of this duty?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Pethick-Lawrence)
The Club referred to has been called upon to furnish a return for Corporation Duty purposes. In reply to the last part of the question, I am not prepared to anticipate the Budget statement.
