HC Deb 01 July 1924 vol 175 c1156W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been called to the fact that, owing to the abandonment of the Three Counties Show owing to the weather, the Three Counties Agricultural Society is very gravely embarrassed financially; and whether he will take into consideration such risks of agricultural shows in deciding upon the liability of agricultural societies to Income Tax upon any balance they may have in hand when they happen to benefit by seasonable weather?


My attention had not previously been called to the statement made in the question. In any case, I do not think I can usefully add anything to the answer I gave to the hon. and gallant Member on the 17th June last.
