Employment Rights - Statement (10 Jun 2021)

...working in partnership with businesses and workers, without heavy-handed legislation.

That is why today I am also confirming the next steps we will be taking to modernise our labour market enforcement regime. In 2019, the Government...

Finance Bill - Second Reading (8 Jun 2021)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: ...Lords have referred to about plastics, red diesel and cycling—very modest again for the chair of COP 26, when you think about the need to act on the climate emergency. We also have an increase in stamp duty land tax for overseas purchases of residential property in England and Northern Ireland which, should your Lordships take an imaginary scan of the boroughs around where we sit today,...

Employment Rights (8 Jun 2021)

Paul Scully: ...working in partnership with businesses and workers, without heavy-handed legislation.

Green Homes Grant Voucher Scheme — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (27 May 2021)

Philip Dunne: ...homes, so why not zero or 5%, depending on the item, for those that need improving as well? We feel that the Treasury has taken a sceptical approach to such measures. It ruled out changes to VAT or stamp duty rebates, which is another suggestion made by industry that we think has significant scope: the rebate would be spent on getting the building up to energy efficiency standards. The UK...

Abena Oppong-Asare: ...being forced into umbrella companies and losing rights as a result. I urge the Government to look carefully at this issue. I thank the Minister for his answer to my question on the non-resident stamp duty surcharge.

The Bill will enable the creation of freeport tax sites in the early stages of the measure, where businesses can benefit from tax reliefs including a stamp duty land tax relief, an enhanced structures and buildings allowance, and an enhanced capital allowance for plant and machinery.

Leasehold Reform (Ground Rent) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (24 May 2021)

Lord Blencathra: ...more deserving of being protected. The Government might say that it is unfair to interfere with the income received from property, but the Government do that all the time when they take up to 12% stamp duty, 28% capital gains and 40% of your money when you die. In conclusion, therefore, there is no fundamental new principle in limiting the charge of ground rents to a peppercorn. Landlords...

The Government is undertaking the most ambitious reforms to our planning system since the Second World War, making it easier to build homes where they are most needed, and the stamp duty holiday (applying to the first £500,000 of property sales) has given a much-needed boost to the economy.

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Social Media: Regulation (21 May 2021)

Caroline Dinenage: Hate speech is completely unacceptable in an open and tolerant society. Our new laws will mean social media companies must keep promises to their users about their standards and stamp out this sort of abuse. Companies will need to take steps to mitigate the risks of harm associated with their algorithms. This will apply in the case of illegal content and, in particular, companies will need to...

Affordable and Safe Housing for All (18 May 2021)

Christopher Pincher: .... Building back fairer means creating a true property-owning democracy in which everyone has a stake in their own home, their community and their country. That is why the Chancellor implemented the stamp duty holiday and extended it earlier this year; why we have brought forward the new mortgage guarantee scheme, helping thousands of first-time buyers; and why last Thursday we reached a...

Debate on the Address: [1st Day] (11 May 2021)

Felicity Buchan: ...confident about taking public transport into our cities and going about their normal lives. Another thing that I would like to see that would kick-start the central London economy is a review of stamp duty. Stamp duty levels are so high that they are preventing social mobility and preventing property transactions. One final request I would make for the central London economy is for our two...

Fire Safety Bill - Commons Reason: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (27 Apr 2021)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: ...lot of the leaseholders affected by these problems are first-time buyers. Developers made a lot of money out of government deals. The Government have been very keen on first-time buyer schemes and stamp duty relief. Why is it that they are so reticent to spell out more detail and give more assurance to leaseholders in the problems that they are facing? The noble Earl, Lord Lytton, was...

The additional technical amendments are necessary to...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion G1 (as an amendment to Motion G) (21 Apr 2021)

Baroness Brinton: ...severity of those attacks, she was well known to everyone in the system. That is why serious and serial domestic violence perpetrators need to be on the register and why there needs to be a duty for all the multiagency partners to work together. If that had happened, this “never event”—a predictable event that should never have been able to happen but did—could have prevented...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Clause 87 - Temporary Period For Reduced Rates On Residential Property (20 Apr 2021)

Christine Jardine: ...Apologies, I do not know what happened just then, but it is now a pleasure to take part in this debate. I will be supporting amendment 81, as will the Liberal Democrats, which would ensure that the stamp duty land tax holiday no longer applies to the purchase of second homes. I will keep my remarks short, in the light of the earlier mishap. Suffice it to say that we believe that the SDLT...
