§ Mr. Swingler
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, in view of the liquidation of the British Lion Film Corporation and the danger of a decline in British film production, he will now reconsider proposals to introduce discriminatory reliefs from entertainments tax in favour of the exhibition of British films.
§ Mr. R. A. Butler
No. As my right hon. Friend explained in reply to the hon. Member for Huddersfield, East (Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu) on 8th April last. I consider that the limited amount of Entertainments Duty relief which can be afforded this year is best given in the way f proposed in my Budget statement.
