asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware of the handicap caused to Stock Exchange brokers generally and to the freedom of markets in registered securities caused by the conditions of the £1 stamp on transfers of stocks and shares; and whether he can see his way to make some change in this respect?
