HC Deb 25 April 1934 vol 288 c1722W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that football cup final tickets, costing a few shillings at the source, are being resold in some cases at a guinea each; and, seeing that this practice is an evasion of the provisions of the Entertainments Duty, will he take the necessary steps to see that the law in this connection is put into effect?


I am not aware of the particular transactions referred to in the first part of the question. As regards the second part, the question of liability to Entertainments Duty depends on the particular circumstances of individual transactions, and if the hon. Member will let me have details of the cases he has in mind inquiry will be made into the matter.
