§ 60. Mr. P. OLIVER
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the rate at which Entertainments Duty will be charged on season tickets issued by orchestral and similar societies for admission to a series of entertainments, some or all of which take place after the 9th November, when payment is made before the 9th November; and whether there will be any difference in the rate charged when admission to the series of entertainments is obtained by production of a single ticket and when admission to the series is obtained by production of separate tickets for each entertainment, all the tickets however being issued at the same time?
§ Mr. P. SNOWDEN
I made this statement in the course of the discussion in Committee a day or two ago, but I will repeat it now. With regard to the first part of the question, Entertainments Duty will be charged at the rates at present in force on any payments for admission to entertainments made before 9th November next irrespective of whether the entertainments take place before that date or not; the answer to the second part of the question is in the negative.
