§ Mr. Roy Hughes
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will list the sports bodies that have protested to him about any proposal to impose a 15 per cent. value added tax on gaming machines on the premises of sports clubs.
§ Mr. Bruce-Gardyne
Value added tax has been chargeable on the net takings of all gaming machines since 1975. I assume that the hon. Member refers to the possible introduction of an ad valorem form of duty. On this many representations have been received from or on behalf of a wide variety of organisations. These include sports bodies and clubs, but a list of those in this category could be compiled only at disproportionate cost.
