HC Deb 09 March 1954 vol 524 cc1921-2
31. Mr. Swingler

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer his estimate of the annual loss of revenue which would result from granting entertainments tax rebates on the exhibition of British films, as proposed in a memorandum to his Department from the Cinematograph Exhibitors' Association.

Mr. R. A. Butler

About £4½ million a year at the present time; but I understand that the Cinematograph Exhibitors' Association no longer support this proposal.
