HC Deb 01 March 1955 vol 537 c240W
38. Mr. Black

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that, notwithstanding the exemption from entertainment tax granted in the case of cricket matches, the price of admission to the forthcoming Test matches with South Africa has been increased; and whether, in these circumstances, he will reconsider their exemption from Entertainments Duty.

Mr. R. A. Butler

Yes; but I do not think the circumstances mentioned call for reconsideration of this exemption.
