HC Deb 20 April 1948 vol 449 c124W
67. Mr. Prescott

asked the Economic Secretary to the Treasury how many U.S. theatrical productions have appeared in this country in the last 12 months; what total sum in dollars has been remitted in consequence; and what are the corresponding figures for British productions in the U.S.A. and dollar receipts in this country.

Mr. Jay

Information about the number and earnings of U.S. theatrical productions in this country and of British productions in the U.S.A. is not available. But during the 12 months ending February last the remittances to the United States by entertainment artists, including those engaged in theatrical productions, amounted to £259,000. Comparable figures of receipts by British artists are not available.
