HC Deb 27 July 1933 vol 280 cc2770-1
56. Lieut.-Colonel APPLIN

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury it he can now state whether it will be possible to accede to the joint request of the 18 associations representing theatrical and allied interests for the setting up of a departmental committee to examine the incidence of the Entertainments Duty and its alleged prejudicial effect in its present form upon the welfare of dramatic art in this country?


This matter is now under consideration by my right hon. Friend and I regret, therefore, that I am not in a position to make any statement regarding it at present.
