Recent appearances

  • Planning Consent Applications (Contracts): Stamp Duty Land Tax Bill 10 Dec 2014

    Of course I, like many colleagues, welcome the measure. My constituents are some of the most aspirational people in the country, and they think that this is a great move by the Government. What assessment has my hon. Friend, or perhaps the Office for Budget Responsibility, made of likely increases in the volume of property transactions as a result of this change to stamp duty?
  • Planning Consent Applications (Contracts): Stamp Duty Land Tax Bill 10 Dec 2014

    My hon. Friend talked about the yearly property tax that others have proposed, but irrespective of whether such a tax were introduced, is it not the case that it would not help those who want to buy their own house? Does he agree that the Government are introducing aspiration into home buying, which is something that we should all be encouraging?
  • Planning Consent Applications (Contracts): Stamp Duty Land Tax Bill 10 Dec 2014

    The Minister cites the schemes that the Government have implemented to help people to buy their own homes. Will he tell us how many people have benefited from the Help to Buy scheme? Will not these changes give a further boost to the scheme?
