HC Deb 21 November 1950 vol 481 c202
51. Lieut.-Colonel Sir Thomas Moore

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will provide a list of those municipal authorities which at the present time have sought and obtained exemption from Entertainments Duty in respect of the theatrical and variety productions provided by them.

Mr. Gaitskell

I regret that this information is not available, and I do not think that the trouble and expense involved in obtaining it would be justified.

Sir T. Moore

Accepting that, is the Chancellor satisfied that requests that are made by local authorities are invariably sympathetically received by his Department?

Mr. Gaitskell

Certainly. If the hon. and gallant Gentleman has any case in mind, perhaps he would let me know about it.
