HC Deb 14 April 1921 vol 140 c1329W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that the Entertainment Duty in militating against the progress of the work which agricultural improvement societies are doing or seeking to do; and, seeing that their object is the improvement of the livestock of the country, which would benefit all the people of the country, and that the tax imposed upon the public attending their shows is a large hindrance to the societies' activities, will he endeavour to get the tax abolished?

Lieut.-Commander YOUNG
