HC Deb 20 May 1952 vol 501 c28W
58. Mr. R. Harris

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what plays are at present running at theatres in the West End of London without entertainment tax having to be paid as a result of facilities granted by the Arts Council.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The conditions governing exemption from Entertainments Duty are laid down by statute and do not depend, either in the West End of London or elsewhere, on the grant of facilities by the Arts Council.

The Arts Council are not associated with any plays at present running in the West End.
