HC Deb 08 October 1946 vol 427 c34
67. Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that since his reduction of the tax on football matches, only a small proportion of the accommodation for the public at the Chariton football ground is available at the reduced price of 1s. 3d., and that a spiked iron fence has been erected to separate this from that section which conforms to the old 1s. 6d. price to which specially convenient transfer facilities have been provided; whether he is satisfied that this is not defeating the object of the tax reduction; and what steps he proposes to take to ensure that football clubs pass on to the public the full benefit of the reduction.

Mr. Glenvil Hall

My right hon. Friend has called for reports covering the country generally, including the ground mentioned.
