HC Deb 25 November 1952 vol 508 c30W
73. Mrs. Braddock

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the amount obtained in tax from boxing promotions since the new tax was imposed, up to date, and the amount for the same period in 1950 and 1951; how many promotions have changed from the tax yielding to charity shows; and how many have closed down altogether since the new tax.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I can give figures only for calendar months and so cannot give complete figures for the period since the increase in duty on 13th September. The figure for October was £13,812.

I regret that no figures are available for earlier years, or on the points raised under the second and third parts of the Question.
