I indicated in my remarks earlier that I had intended to oppose these clauses standing part of the Bill, but because we have had such a full debate on all of their aspects, I do not think that it is necessary.

Clause 32 agreed.

Amendments 55 to 58 not moved.

Clause 33 : Scottish tax on transactions involving interests in land

Amendment 58A

Moved by Lord Forsyth of Drumlean

58A: Clause 33, page 27, line 1, at end insert-

"(3) The tax may only be charged by the Scottish Government.

(4) The tax shall be set at a uniform rate across Scotland."
