HC Deb 20 June 1950 vol 476 cc1064-5
54. Mr. Keeling

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the estimated annual amount of Entertainments Duty collected in respect of amateur entertainments not eligible for relief from Duty.

Sir S. Cripps

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave him on 13th June.

Mr. Keeling

Is the right hon. and learned Gentleman aware that that only referred to cases where relief is given? My Question today refers to cases where relief is not given.

Sir S. Cripps

Relief is given, as was stated on that occasion, in all cases where entertainments are amateur as defined in the Act of 1949.
