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