asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what has been the yield of the Entertainments Duty each year of its existence up till 31st March, 1922, and during the period from 31st March till the issue of the most recent Return of Income and Expenditure for the current year?
The yield of the Entertainments Duty from 15th May, 1916, when the duty was first imposed, has been as follows:
|Year ended 31st March—||£|
|Period from 1st April, 1922, to 10th June, 1922||1,727,056|
Is it not a fact that the Entertainments Duty in this country is entirely killing the cinematograph industry?
