§ Sir J. LONSDALE
asked the Secretary to the Treasury if any communications have passed between the officers of Customs and Excise in Ireland and the Gaelic Athletic Association with reference to the question of liability for Entertainments Duty; and if the Gaelic Athletic Association have withdrawn their refusal to pay duty in respect of their athletic meetings?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The Association have raised the question of their liability with the Commissioners of Customs and Excise, and communications are still in progress, but no refusal on their part to pay the tax has been received.
