HC Deb 19 December 1933 vol 284 c1110
49. Major OWEN

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the curtailment of opportunities for social gatherings in rural areas resulting from the imposition of the Entertainments Duty, he will consider waiving the tax in the case of concerts, dramatic performances, etc., in districts where the population is less than 1,000?


I have noted the hon. and gallant Member's suggestion, but he must not expect me to anticipate my Budget statement.
