§ 57. Mr. Maudling
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is prepared to grant a rebate of entertainments tax in cases where a cinema shows a British film.
§ Mr. Maudling
While appreciating the hon. Gentleman's position, may I ask him to ask the Chancellor to have a look in the meantime, at a scheme of this nature which has been introduced in Italy with considerable benefit to the Italian film industry, now suffering from a similar difficulty?
§ 58. Mr. Maudling
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is prepared to reduce the degree of differentiation in the matter of entertainment tax as between cinemas and other forms of entertainment.
§ Commander Noble
Will the Minister bear in mind that cinemas consider that they are badly treated in this matter, especially vis-à-vis musical halls?
