HC Deb 09 May 1923 vol 163 c2400W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, with the object of reducing taxation in other respects, he has considered the advisability of imposing a tax on all advertisements in the daily and weekly newspapers, in magazines and other periodicals, and on advertisement hoardings and public and private buildings; and, if so, whether he can give any estimate of the revenue likely to be derived from that source?


The suggestions made from time to time as to the desirability of imposing a tax on advertisements have been noted. I am not in a position to give any estimate of the revenue which might be derived from this source.
