HC Deb 30 October 1985 vol 84 c495W
Mr. Speller

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will introduce legislation to exempt from tax donations to the arts by private or corporate donors, and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Moore

I have noted my hon. Friend's suggestion. Many bodies concerned with the arts are charities, and donations made to them under deed of covenant already qualify for tax relief.
