HC Deb 18 July 1946 vol 425 c249W
Mr. E. P. Smith

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what he estimates would be the loss to the Revenue if an amount of the production expenditure upon each new full-length play produced for profit for the first time in the United Kingdom were exempted from Entertainment Tax, assuming such production expenditure as averaging £2,500 per play.

Mr. Dalton

I regret that it is not practicable to make such an estimate.
