HC Deb 31 July 1916 vol 84 cc2085-6W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that promoters of charitable entertainments have been informed that the Entertainments Tax stamps bought in connection with various celebrations are not returnable if unused; and whether he can make allowance for unused tickets so as to avoid loss to charity?


The persons referred to appear to have been misinformed. Unused Entertainments Tax stamps may be returned to the Customs and Excise Department and a claim made for allowance thereon under the stamp laws. The Board of Customs and Excise inform me that a number of claims have already been settled.
