HC Deb 25 January 1945 vol 407 c984W
Mr. E. P. Smith

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in his forthcoming Budget, he will take steps to end the invidious distinction between the A, partly educational, and B, not partly educational, lists of plays furnished by His Majesty's Board of Customs and Excise in which the former are freed from Entertainments Duty when presented by non-profit-making theatrical companies while the latter are not.

Sir J. Anderson

My hon. Friend will not expect me to anticipate my Budget Statement, but I can assure him that this subject is receiving constant consideration.
