HC Deb 05 December 1934 vol 295 c1593
60. Mr. H. WILLIAMS for

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that the Croydon Operatic Society is a society run not for profit but solely for the purpose of maintaining public interest in good music; that the activities of the society are being handicapped by heavy demands for entertainment tax; and whether ho will consider taking steps to have this burden remitted retrospectively?


I am informed that the performances recently given by the society in question have already been exempted from Entertainments Duty.
