HC Deb 31 March 1926 vol 193 c2058W
Sir W. de FRECE

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he has considered, or will consider, the desirability and possibility of placing cabaret and variety shows on the same footing with other entertainments as regards Entertainments Duty?


As stated in the reply to my hon. Friend's question on the subject, given on the 25th March, the cabaret performances in question are not legally liable to Entertainments Duty. As at present advised, I am not prepared to introduce legislation with a view to extending the scope of the existing law.
