HC Deb 08 June 1939 vol 348 c609W
Mr. Hall-Caine

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury for what reason certain hotels and restaurants in the West-end of London have been asked to pay entertainment tax in respect of floor shows which they provide; and whether he proposes to take any action in this connection so far as night-clubs and bottle-parties where floor shows are also given?

Captain Crookshank

With regard to the first part of the question, Entertainments Duty has been claimed from hotels and restaurants where legal liability to the duty arises; with regard to the second part, the answer is in the affirmative.
