Mr. H. Wilson
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the yield in the financial 44W year 1952–53 of entertainments tax on cinemas; and how that yield compared with the estimate made by him at the time of the passage of the Finance Act, 1952.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
About £37¾ million; this compares with an estimated (adjusted for concessions made during the passage of the Finance Act. 1952) of £39.35 million.
